BLOOMFIELD — A rare glimpse of Depression-era Bloomfield is on display just steps away from the town center, where two old-time advertisements painted on the brick side of a Washington Street building have been unveiled after being covered up since the 1930s.

Now the advertisements, and the wall they’re painted on at the corner of the corner of Washington Street and Lackawanna Place across from the train station, are slated to be razed too, as part of the town’s redevelopment plan.

The ads for Lipton’s department store and Fischer’s, a men’s clothing and hat shop, are relics of a bygone era in Bloomfield and evoke a certain nostalgia among some of the town’s older residents, said Jean Kuras, president of the Bloomfield Historical Society. – Aliza Appelbaum – The Star-Ledger
