Central Railroad of New Jersey. Tourists' Guide.
The railroads have in a great measure taken the places of country seats. Instead of a home in the country in which one can retire from the heats of summer, the fashion is now to travel. The railroads recognize the fact that they have to cater to this intelligent class. Flower beds adorn the station grounds, and the beauties of the leading points of interest are laid before the public. This little work is in this line of public demand, and shows how beautiful are many of the scenes along the line of the road.
