There are lots of cards whose images were taken from this area, but I don't think I've seen this one before.

Rare or not, this guy charges too much for a card ripped out of a photo album.

It HAD to be Gene Hacker. He even put his name on his new site:

Seller's description:

4 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches, "compliments of Tidewater Coal & Supply Co., H.B. Ferber, President, Hackansack, NJ." with 1923 and 1924 calendars. has all sorts of information in front, then date pages. Man went to work for Corbin Sedan Co., and last half filled in with information about how he traveled and how much spent. for example on October 23rd, he went, "Long Island run - about car ferry 60 cents." fascinating.


One of the entries is for Charles Goddard of 15 Linden St - the man who owned the 1908 diary that the same seller has up for auction. 15 Linden is across the street from Comfort Coal. Is there a connection between Tidewater Coal and Comfort Coal?

I'm not sure what River Edge building you're referring to, but my money's on the Swiss Chalet that was on Passaic St in Rochelle Park.

Comfort Coal was located where the Rite-Aid strip is on Anderson St. Its president in the early part of the 20th century was Hiram Blauvelt of the Blauvelt Mansion on Kinderkamack Rd in Oradell. Comfort Coal burned down in a spectacular fire in the 1950s.

OK - so it's Hackensack, Minnesota. Fortunately, we don't have an "attraction" THAT ugly! The seller thinks it's 50s, but it's 60s - it mentions lakes that were stocked in 1961 and 1962. On the back, it says, "All roads lead to Hackensack". How do I know? I bought one on eBay a long time ago (Lucette got to me).

It just says "Hackensack". I asked the seller how she knew it was from Hackensack NJ and not Hackensack MN. Her reply:

"this came with a whole lot of other items from a family who lived in Hackensack New jersey, which is why I listed it that way. Perhaps it is from MN, I can only go with the weight of the other items."

I wish I could describe them all!


There were lots of other local NJ/NY photos not mentioned in the seller's description (see auction), but I'm only posting the Hackensack church interior and the resident's "mighty organ".

Anyone know which church this might be?

Seller's description:

    This item is a wonderful,original document dated 1800, New York, where Richard Varick has signed a pay order for copies of the state laws....5x7, tipped to larger sheet, would frame up nicely

    Richard Varick (March 15, 1753 Hackensack, Bergen County, New Jersey - July 30, 1831 Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey) was an American lawyer and politician.

    On June 28, 1775 he was appointed Captain of the 1st New York Regiment. He served under General Philip Schuyler in various posts until after the Battle of Saratoga and was then appointed inspector general of West Point.

    At West Point, he became an aide to General Benedict Arnold. Although he was no longer serving in this capacity when Arnold defected to the British, Varick, along with David Franks was arrested, but subsequently cleared by a court of inquiry. After the West Point incident, Varick served under General George Washington as private secretary until the end of the war.

    Varick was a Recorder of New York from 1783 to 1789, and New York State Attorney General from 1788 to 1789. He was Mayor of New York City from 1791 to 1801. Along with Samuel Jones, Varick revised the statutes of New York (1788). He was a member of the New York State Assembly from New York County from 1786 to 1788, and was Speaker in 1787 and 1788. He served as a colonel in the state militia.

    Varick also served as a bank officer. He was a founder and later President (succeeding John Jay) of the American Bible Society. Richard Varick was a member of the Society of the Cincinnati and president of the New York chapter until his death. He was a member and generous contributor to many charitable organizations in New York City.

    At the outbreak of the war, fifteen year old John Bogert was drafted out of the Albany militia to escort British prisoners taken at St. Johns' to Kingston and then on to Pennsylvania. The next year, he was a sailor on his father's sloop, the Magdeline helping transport stores and supplies on the Hudson for the Continental army. In 1777, he took over for his father as skipper. The Magdeline carried companies of soldiers between Albany and Fishkill and hauled provisions, wood, and military stores as well. Later he conducted the wife of a British officer, a French priest, and others to New York under a flag of truce. Bogert's pension application details his services, which continued on the river and on land during the winter thru the end of the war. Although appearing on local muster rolls, this able teenager was valuable enough to be exempted from military service on a number of occasions.

    By the time he came of age at the end of the war, John Bogert was an experienced Hudson River skipper. Living on court Street in his father's first ward household, he began to take part in civic actiities serving as chimney viewer and fireman. Later he would be elected alderman, supervisor, and then chamberlain or treasurer. He retained his milita commission for a number of years.
