Officers and Public Institutions

CAMDEN, N. J.:
Sinnickson Chew, Printer and Publisher.
1872

The Camden Directory for 1872, contains twelve hundred more names than any of its predecessors. This increase is the result of the natural growth, in population; and the extension of the city lines, so as to include the outlying towns within the. corporate limits. The progress of the city noticed last year, continues unabated ; giving force to the prediction, that, in less than five years, Camden will number not less than fifty thousand inhabitants. Within the past year, our city has assumed a metropolitan character; we have added street roailroads [sic] to other conveniences, for the people’s comfort ; and the experiment has beer crowned with triumphant success. The necessity for a Directory containing the names and places of residence of our Citizens, needs no argument ; and the fact that the work has been more liberally sustained than formerly, is proof sufficient that it is appreciated. The publisher desires to return his thanks to the business men of Camden, for the the encouragement given him, to continue the publication of his Directory, and hopes it will be found to contain all that is essential to the proper make-up of a work of its character.
