Hi Frank,

Looking at your vast site reminded me of some photos of ads on buildings I have shot in the past. Attached are some that you are welcome to post at your site.

Best Regards,

Robert Baptista

Outstanding shots Robert! -FHJ

The Borne Chemical Co. depicted in the 1997 photo was located on a 9-acre site at 632 South Front St., Elizabeth, NJ. Chemical operations began at the site around 1917. Borne Chemical used the site for the processing and blending of various types of petroleum, dyes and chemical products. When oil prices skyrocketed in the 1970s, the company began to sell recycled motor oil and auto transmission fluid. But oil prices dropped in the 1980s so the company went bankrupt and abandoned the site. The property is now listed as a Superfund site which the City of Elizabeth hopes to redevelop it after the environmental cleanup.
