Fantastic Fire @ Belle Meade Sweets 1916

Trenton Evening Times January 05, 1916

Fire did $100,000 damage to plant of Belle Meade Sweets. See?
The front page of the Trenton Evening Times the next day had a photo of the burned out building that looked like something out of post war Europe Tragic! All that chocolate, GONE!

It sucked to live in this apartment!

Not exactly a perfect picture, but what a picture! I can practically feel the heat!

I bought this a good thirty years back in the South Street area of Philly and pull it out of the box once every five years just to look at it again. Amazing...
