    Then and Now - Newark Riots

    A couple of interesting then and now photographs of Newark during the riots of 1967, and today.

    View of stores along Broad Street by Branford Place where there once was a beauty school. The beauty school was destroyed by fire set by rioters. 

    View of the intersection of Prince Street and Springfield Ave. as it looks today. Photo on the left taken in 1967 during the Newark riots. In 1967 a store stood on the site. Photo on the right taken July 12th, 2012 on the same corner.

    1. Can I use your photos for a computer project? Also, do you have any more photos from the riots?
