Old Historical Photos of Camden,NJ

July 24 1962 – Steps from pedestrian overpass over Rt. 130 at Federal Street Camden NJ, seem to lead right into the street area. The Penn Fruit sign on the right at top.

 

  This toll-gate on the Haddonfield and Camden Turnpike was located next to what today is the recently closed Dominican Monastery of the Holy Rosary. The photo was taken from what is now a parking lot for Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center.
The Haddonfield-Camden Turnpike is now called Haddon Avenue. It was established as a turnpike in 1839. The county took over ownership of the road in 1893.

“The autogyro was invented by the Spanish engineer Juan de la Cierva. Cierva’s aircraft resembled the fixed-wing aircraft of the day, with a front-mounted engine and propeller. De la Cierva’s autogyro used an airplane fuselage with a forward-mounted propeller and engine, a rotor mounted on a mast, and a horizontal and vertical stabilizer. The term Autogiro was a trademark of the Cierva Autogiro Company, and the term Gyrocopter was used by E. Burke Wilford who developed the Reiseler Kreiser feathering rotor equipped gyroplane in the first half of the twentieth century.”
