Contact Kathy Dorn Severini for information about these images.

For almost a century the Dorn family has provided photo services to the greater Red Bank area.

The Dorn family sold photo equipment, developed and printed photos, served as community photographers and even produced newsreels and engaged in aerial photography.

Over the years the Dorn family has become the area repository for historical photographs and negatives and today Dorn's Classic Images manages an archive of over 10,000 negatives and rare photos that reach back almost to the civil war.

This archive contains many maritime photos and NMHA and Dorn's Classic Images are cooperating in making these images readily available to the public. Many of the images exist as glass plate negatives and therefore have extraordinary resolution and are great for research and for identification purposes. In addition many are just plain gorgeous photos of what the Navesink area used to look like.

The Dorn's Classic Images Photogallery contains a sampling of photos that can be ordered from Dorn's Classic Images by emailing Kathy Dorn.

But remember there are many more images and if you are looking for something that existed in the last 150 years in our area, whether it is railroads, airplanes, farms, firemen, homes or parades just get in touch with Kathy Dorn. Chances are she'll have something to show.
