Those Places Thursday - Warren Street, Trenton, NJ

Warren Street, showing St. Mary's Catholic Church, Trenton, NJ ca 1900-1910
Another great find on eBay, a postcard from around 1900 showing St. Mary's Catholic Church on Warren Street in Trenton, NJ.  What is the particular interest in this card you may ask?  Well, St. Mary's Catholic Church which is still there today is located at 151 N. Warren Street and my husband's ancestor, his great-grandfather, Dr. Elmer H. Rogers lived and conducted his medical practice from 126 N. Warren Street which would have been across the street.  I don't know if the house still exists today, but he and his family surely shopped frequently on nearby Warren Street and this postcard gives me such a visual of what the street must have looked like.  I have posted before how Dr. Rogers frequently took his horse and buggy on medical calls.
