Terhune and his photo; The Arbor Day Spirit message from Addison B. Poland and his photo; Why Arbor Day Should Be Celebrated message from James M. Green and his photo. Inside back cover shows View of River Street - Hackensack.

Amazing piece of Bergen County - Hackensack history!  >>

I saw that the seller notes that the printing year was 1909. Could this be a BCHS reprint? I also tried to make the page images more readable, but that cover was pretty bad to begin with (see auction image).
