NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - Middlesex County is looking for your photos of family members posing in front of the front steps of the house or on the living room couch in the 1950s.
To complete an exhibit about New Jersey in that post-WW II decade of baby boomers, station wagons and floral wallpaper, the county is asking people for photographs of their families taken in Middlesex County.
All the pictures will be used in an exhibit at the Cornelius Low House/ Middlesex County Museum in Piscataway.
One wall of the exhibit will be covered with scans of photos from Middlesex County families- showing how they lived, where they worked and most of all, how they experienced life.
“If you or your family were part of the Garden State's mid-century history, please consider making your story part of this fascinating exhibit,” said Middlesex County Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios.
The county is asking people to submit up to three images, not the original photos, but high-resolution 300 dpi scans or clear digital photographs taken of the snapshots.
"Your contributions will help bring this exhibit to life. Our county has an incredible history which we are all a part of,” said Freeholder Kenneth Armwood, Chair of the Business Development and Education Committee.
The county is asking that people email submissions to email@example.com and include a brief description of who or what is in the photos and the locations and dates of when they were taken.
