Original Rahway City Hall.
Thanks to Jeff Jotz for the image. Jeff notes the city shared the building with a bank & - on the third floor - a pool hall. Add a speakeasy in the basement & the city office staff of this era would've had no reason to leave the building for lunch.

The building was home to Rahway's City Hall - and other commercial pursuits - in 1858 when the City was incorporated. Of course, that means that 2008 is Rahway's sesquicentennial!Post a Comment
