Welcome to History Notes, our weekly feature that looks at Egg Harbor Township history. Each week we get a chance to learn or reminisce courtesy of Lynn Wood of the Greate Egg Harbour Township Historical Society, who shares early photos of places in Egg Harbor Township with our readers.

From 1953 to the early 1980s, Tony Galetta and his sons Nick and Frank operated a popular market called Galletta’s Market, which was on the Black Horse Pike in the Cardiff section of the township. They specialized in sandwiches and homemade sausage.
