This website, LandingNewJersey.com, is non-profit, has nothing to sell, and offers free listings to Landing, NJ businesses and organizations. We're interested in Landing and Lake Hopatcong history and recently became acquainted with someone, Joe F. who shares that interest and is making available high quality reprints and enlargements of classic postcards and photographs of our area. Most images are 100 years old !! As a community service, we're showing small copies of what he is offering. We're NOT receiving any money for this, and Joe's prices are very reasonable given the rarity of the originals he searches for and purchases and the care he puts into reproducing them. The descriptions that accompany the photos were written by Joe. If you're interested, do NOT e-mail us, contact Joe directly via e-mail at Plumbpro@aol.com   for more info and pricing.

L-Landjunc.jpg (25437 bytes) A 8 1/2" x 11" high quality copy of an old photo (possibly real photo postcard) printed on premium glossy photo paper. This photo is from around 1910 and shows the current day intersection of Landing Rd. and Lakeside Blvd. In Landing, Morris County, New Jersey at Lake Hopatcong. Great detail can be seen in the photo. The building at the left was the old general store and post office. In the foreground the tracks of the Morris County Traction Company can be seen. In the background Lake Hopatcong can be seen with ladies in period dress. This also shows the steam boat landing in the lake from which Landing got it's name. Boats can been seen in the distance. Four period automobiles are shown and a partial view of a horse and buggy are to the left. The picture is much better than seen in the scan
A 8 1/2" x 11" high quality copy printed on premium glossy photo paper of 2 trolley cars of The Morris County Traction Co. At Lake Hopatcong in Landing, Morris County, New Jersey c. 1911. This picture was taken on the road above the train station over the bridge by the lake at the current day intersection of Landing Rd. and Lakeside Blvd. Great detail is seen in the photo and there are 2 different type of trolley cars shown. I think this may have been a transfer point for the car on the left to run visitors up to Bertrand Island while the car on the right may have came to this point from Dover. Great Lake Hopatcong and trolley car history. An vintage automobile is also shown in the photo to the left. Quality of this picture is much better than seen in the scan. L-Trolley.jpg (21080 bytes)
L-KingStore.jpg (21815 bytes) A 8 1/2" x 11" high quality copy printed on premium glossy photo paper of the Landing Post Office and General Store at Lake Hopatcong. This was also known as the William E. King Store. The date of the picture is circa 1890's since it shows the building before it was added on to in later years. This is the building as shown on Robinson's 1887 Morris County Atlas. William E. King was the first Postmaster here in 1886. Great detail in the photo, a small portion of the Morris Canal can be seen in the picture to the left. A advertisement for Quaker Oats can be seen in the store window. The ladies are in vintage dresses and hats. The identity of the people shown is unknown but possibly the King Family and possibly William E. King standing in the center of the photo. This building once stood where the traffic light in Landing, Morris County, New Jersey at the intersection of Landing Rd. and Lakeside Blvd. is today just before Lake Hopatcong. Great history and this would look great framed. Quality of this picture is much better than seen in the scan.
A 8 1/2" x 11 high quality copy of a company photo on premium glossy photo paper. A Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad photo of the new station built at Lake Hopatcong, Landing, Morris County in 1910 -1911. The view is looking eastbound and date of the photo is circa 1912 and the Morris Canal is seen in the foreground. Great detail in the photo and not seen in this scan. L-Landrr.jpg (22509 bytes)
L-Bridge1919.jpg (24178 bytes)
(Ed note: This photo looks north, the 8 sided building on the right is no longer standing, but it's location is now the parking area of Weichert Realtors)
A 8 1/2" x 11 high quality copy of a photo c. 1919 on premium glossy photo paper. From a private collection. It shows the Morris Canal in Landing (Morris County) at the Lake Hopatcong train station on the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad. Some of the great detail in the photo shows the Landing General Store and Post Office. This building once stood where the traffic light in Landing at the intersection of Landing Rd. and Lakeside Blvd. is today just before Lake Hopatcong. The building in the photo to the far left I believe is still standing today as a deli. You can also see the bridge in Landing built in 1907 over the canal and railroad right of way. Trolley cars of the Morris County Traction Co. crossed this bridge until the 1920's. Below the buildings to the right of the bridge there are 2 advertisements that can be read. (They cannot be read in the scan but can be in the actual picture) 1) Polarine - Oil and Greases for all motors, and 2) Real Estate Insurance - The Hopatcong Real Estate Co. That could possibly be the business in the building to the right. You can see Lake Hopatcong peeking between the two buildings. The stairs in the left foreground lead to the train station. The picture is so clear and detailed that you can count the stones in the wall. Great Lake Hopatcong and Morris Canal History. Quality of this picture is much better than seen in the scan
L-kingcompound.jpg (18249 bytes) A 8 1/2" x 11" high quality copy printed on premium glossy photo paper of King's Canal Store and residence in Ledgewood, Morris County, New Jersey c. 1910. Remarkably both of these buildings are still standing on Main Street thanks to The Roxbury Rotary Club. They have undergone various stages of renovation and restoration but still look the same. The Morris Canal was once located just across the street and was a source of revenue for the store. Great Roxbury history and this would look great framed. Quality of this picture is much better as seen in the scan.
