Newark history on display at Mr. Pickles

By Kelsey Camello

Last year, the Washington Township Museum of Local History and sandwich shop chain Mr. Pickles teamed up to present slices of Newark history in a brand new store, located at 5849 Jarvis Avenue in Newark.

The store now prominently displays ten images of historic Newark, ranging from the 1860s through 1911. These images represent an era in Newark that is all but gone from todayÕs landscape. Stop into the shop sometime soon, eat a sandwich, and learn some Newark history all at once! Sadna Naicker, owner of the store, has a list of captions which tell much more about each photograph than can be gleaned from a simple viewing. Feel free to ask her for a copy.

The Washington Township Museum of Local History is always open to new collaborations and working with community-minded individuals who want to incorporate Tri-City History into their personal and professional lives. Are you interested in purchasing high resolution scans from the museum archives? Contact us via phone at 510-623-7907, stop in at 190 Anza Street, Fremont, CA 94539, or visit online at www.museumoflocalhistory.org.
