Nanticoke, PA to Hillsborough, NJ

The HNJJ post of August 17th titled From Black Lung to White Lung discussed the connection between Nanticoke, Pennsylvania, and the Hillsborough-Manville area. Manville was part of Hillsborough until April 1,1929.

I am still trying to follow the migration from Nanticoke to Central Jersey, meanwhile enjoy these Nanticoke photographs taken about two weeks ago.

More information may be available in the book Ellis Island, The Coal Mines to the Asbestos Capital of the World by Ed Purzycki if a copy can be located.
