Digging Up the Past

I headed over to the Jersey Room at the public library to see what I could find about Breadalbane Terrace.

That's the side of my JC house. I'd learned previously that the original developer of my block had descended from the Breadalbane branch of the Scottish Highlander Clan Campbell.

My block is so distinct with its tin bay windows. Surely there must be some info out there, I thought.

The librarians showed me some books and then gave me searchable access to the Jersey Journal database. I didn't find what I was looking for, which is an old photo of my house so I can figure out how to restore it, but I did find some interesting bits and pieces.

I find it odd that real estate transactions were noted in newspapers.
