Camden was once a hub of music

JOURNEYS INTO NEW JERSEY

Many folks don't have much pause for Camden.

Its reputation for crime, corruption, decay and as the place just across from Philly, stops too many from looking at it as a place of substance and history.

Camden is known these days for its efforts to bring tourists in - the light rail makes stops for attractions such as the Aquarium, the USS New Jersey and a minor league ballpark along the banks of the Delaware.

Beyond these efforts, Camden has a lot more worth considering.

Many are familiar with the corporate presence of the Campbell Soup Company. It was in the late 1800's when Joseph Campbell and an associate began marketing a condensed soup and started the Campbell Soup Company. Campbell has been in town in one form or another ever since. At its height it employed thousands and featured an exhibition place the most prestigious collection of soup tureens in the world. Its factory was famous for "soup can" water tanks that adorned its roof. In 1992, when the factory was destroyed, efforts were made to "Save the Can," but somehow even the last ‘soup can' was lost. Camden, though, retains a presence in town.
