In 1982, when MCHS published New Neighbors, Old Friends, a book on Morristown’s Italian community, the book’s author donated nearly 1,000 images for the endeavor . Documenting weddings, family gatherings, clubs, social events, and every day life, the photos are an immersive portrait of the life of its members in the first half of the 20th century. Enjoy this look back at one of Morristown’s communities that helped shape the town’s unique history. For more from this remarkable collection, see Snapshots of Morristown’s Italian Community, Part I.
