General thoughts about my growing up in the 1930's and some items about Yardville Heights New Jersey.

It is long gone but there was once a memorial to local veterans of Worl War Two.. It was mainly for men and women from Yardville Heights and Lakeside who served in World War II. I think it was located on the Yardville Elementary School grounds at the foot of Highland Avenue. I can recognize some of the names even though it is not a great photo. Considering the small population of those two areas, it is obvious that a high percentage of us were in the service.
There was also another such memorial in Yardville where the Yardville National Bank was located on South Broad Street. This looks like a fancier version.
I don't know if there was nay ovelap of names since the Yardville Memorial is a bit hard to read.
I grew up in Yardville Heights, a small village about 6 miles east of Trenton, NJ. Some of my blog is about growing up in that village in the 1930s. I now enjoy foreign travel, digital photography, theater crafts. My Email contact is firstname.lastname@example.org .
