Photos: Ridgewood's Early Beginnings

From stately manors to Ridgewood's natural wonders, this Greetings From Bergen County video captures a decidedly smaller village (pop: 7,500 in the 1920s)

Love those streets without parking meters. Terrific video, thank you.

These are amazing photos -- but they are from the early 1900s, not the 1920s, judging from the long-skirted women and the horses and buggies. In the 1920s, women wore flapper garb, danced the Charleston, etc. and horses and buggies were not in vogue. Instead, most families had one car, with running boards.

I love this stuff! Too bad you can't see some of the locations because the pictures are cut off.

Hey Dom, how did you like that concrete swimming pool?
