Photo of the Day: Newark's Four Corners

Photographed in 1926, Four Corners was the busiest traffic center in the nation.

Newark's "Four Corners," the intersection of Market and Broad Streets is a busy place -- and has been for about a century.

Pictured here in 1926, the intersection saw some 36,596 in a 12-hour period, according to the State Motor Vehicle Department. That total included trolley and 124 horse-drawn vehicles.

A traffic survey reports that "Four Corners" traffic was "handled better than at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street, New York."
