35-STAR 71st NEW YORK VOLUNTEERS FLAG: Dating from around 1864 and fashioned in the double medallion pattern, flanked by a star in each corner, this flag is among those on display in Morven Museum & Garden’s “Stars and Stripes: Fabric of the American Spirit.” Featuring 100 flags from The Pierce Collection of American Parade Flags, the exhibit will run from July 1 through October 30. A reception, open to the public, will be held on Thursday, June 30 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Morven is also hosting a free Independence Day celebration on Monday, July 4 from noon to 3 p.m.

American Flags Tell a Wealth of Stories In Exhibit Opening at Morven This Week

“Short but sweet, our acquaintance,” wrote Louis I. Newman, a passenger aboard the German liner SS Amerika in 1909. “Best wishes” was the simple signature of Mrs. J.B. Lince of Des Moines, Iowa.

Princeton Photo Lab Closing Its Doors After 16-Plus Years on Nassau Street

Anne Levin

After almost 17 years on Nassau Street, Princeton Photo Lab will serve customers tomorrow, Thursday, June 30, for the last time. The shop is closing to make room for a “nationwide retailer,” according to a spokesman for the Chatham-based David Cronheim Company, which owns the building. The new, as-yet unidentified business (the product may be shoes, according to area storeowners) will occupy the combined space of Princeton Photo and the adjacent Princeton Barber Shop, which is moving around the corner to Tulane Street.
