Aero view of New-Brunswick, New Jersey, 1910.

Reproduction aero view map of New Brunswick, Middlesex County, New Jersey drawn and published by Hughes & Bailey in 1910. New Brunswick grew as an important trading center along what was called the "King's Highway". Robert Wood Johnson began the popular Johnson & Johnson Company in New Brunswick in the 1870's with partner George J. Seabury as "Seabury & Johnson". By 1910 Johnson & Johnson was a thriving company now run by Johnson's two sons, with its newest offering of sterilized dressings and its creative "first-aid kits". The kits were considered the latest essential item to be outfitted in homes and businesses of the era. Robert Wood Johnson the elder died in the year of this map's publishing.

New Brunswick's town booster from 1910 reads:

"New Brunswick is a busy, progressive and substantial city with large and varied industries, of 30,000 and commercial center of 100,000 population within a 12 mile radius.

Finely situated on the Raritan River, and Delaware and Raritan Canal, with four miles of water front, navigatable for large vessels and near the bay and ocean.

On the main line of Pennsylvania R. R. with its vast system of trunk line connections, the terminal of the Raritan River R. R. connecting with N. J. Central and N. Y. and Long Branch R. R. with two lines of freight steamers daily to and from New York, and canal to Trenton and Phila., ample facilities are afforded for travel and shipping. Commutation rates to New York-time 40 minutes-are very low and service very best.

The general center of an extensive system of Electric R. R.'s giving advantages unsurpassed elsewhere in the State.

Excellent Fire and Police protection with complete and superior equipment. Water system under Municipal Government, gives adequate supply of pure spring water for every service. Gas and Electricity supplied by Public Service Commission at low cost.

Officially reported fifth healthiest city in the Union. Third city in New Jersey in Manufacturing. Operating 134 Factories. Sound Banks well managed. $10,000,000 assets. Extensive Mercantile Houses supplying large section of the state. Holds high rank in Educational Institutions in number and efficiency, the seat of Rutgers College with its National reputation as one of the oldest and best. Also State Agriculture Experiment station. Three well equipped and endowed Libraries, open to the public. Twenty-seven churches and places of worship. Two daily and three weekly Newspapers. Active and prominent Board of Trade, alive to local interests and favorable to further enterprise. The city was chartered in 1730, and incorporated in 1784."
