The White Horse Pike may not be America’s most famous road, but it is one of the most storied. Originally a migratory footpath of the Leni-Lenape, this timeless 60-mile route from the Delaware to the Atlantic has been followed by everyone from Walt Whitman to the Jersey Devil. It has served as a stagecoach highway, a toll road, and a pattern for railroads. The White Horse Pike depicts the heyday of this still popularcity-to-shore road, the most direct route from Camden to Atlantic City.

The books, written by Jill Maser, 50, of the Blackwood section of Gloucester Township, reflect the rich history of the multiple towns along the pikes through a gallery of photos. A man, sitting tall in a World War I uniform upon a horse along the Black Horse Pike when it was a dirt road, waits for a celebration for returning World War I soldiers. Maser, a fiction author, worked with Arcadia Publishing as part of its Images of America series to publish the White Horse Pike book in 2005 and the Black Horse Pike book that hit shelves in September. I started digging around and found it fascinating," Maser said.

This little book is packed solid with surprising and stunning facts about the White Horse Pike (US Route 30) and the surrounding area where the pike runs. I grew up in the town where Kirkwood Lake is that Whitman writes of. But I had no idea of the narrow-gauge railroad running through the area, the towns of Lawnside and Berlin had previous names of Lawnton and Long-A-Coming, respectively. Also, the trolley cars that ran to Magnolia which were ones my grandfather rode to see his sweetie who eventually became his wife. The photos and descriptions of the construction of the then-called Delaware River Briidge, now known as the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, are spectacular! How they did it--raising the towers, stringing the cables, laying the roadbed and train tracks for the subway lines running from Philadelphia to Camden. The bridge is a genuine marvel of civil engineering. The book is a marvel of South Jersey history. Buy it. Buy copies for your friends. Get in the know. Be the authority. Great pics of train stations and other commercial establishments and houses in Haddon Heights, Magnolia, Berlin, Hammonton, and Egg Harbor. Well worth the price. The only downside is the remark that President Hoover came to the bridge's opening to vehicular traffic in 1926. Calvin Coolidge was the president then. Maybe Cooldge came up from DC. Still a great book.

Living next to the White Horse Pike, this book answers a bunch of questions that I have had about my town and points of interest. The pictures are fantastic and it is great to see how certain areas looked 80 years ago.

Great information about towns and buildings. The information on the Ben Franklin Bridge makes one appreciate the engineering and construction.

This is a great look at historical photos along US Route 30 in southern New Jersey, and the captions do much more than just identify the images. I live in south Jersey and I never knew there was so much history right in my backyard. The photos of the Ben Franklin Bridge are fascinating, and who knew there was a munitions factory just outside of Hammonton? This is a great book for history lovers.
