“ … Well I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake, rattle and roll …”
“Shake, Rattle and Roll”
~ written in 1954 by Jesse Stone (1901-1999) under his assumed songwriting name Charles E. Calhoun
~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
Strolling through Belvidere, New Jersey on a rare warm February afternoon, I came across this cool sign for Dee’s Doos Hair Salon. Elvis Presley sang about “Shake, Rattle and Roll,” but at Dee’s I believe the slogan would be “Cut, Color and Roll!”
Belvidere, one of my very favorite places, is a charming Victorian town located on the banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.

“Art is much, but love is more.”
~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning
It's "horsepower" in tandem as a horse-drawn carriage crosses paths with a Chevy Bel Air – which sported an “historic” license plate – at the 27th Belvidere Victorian Days in Garret D. Wall Park on a beautiful waning summer afternoon in Belvidere, New Jersey.
Victorian Days, held the weekend after Labor Day, is a celebration of Belvidere’s Victorian heritage. Festivities include live entertainment; antique, craft and food vendors; antique/vintage car show; and Victorian era demonstrations.
Belvidere, one of my very favorite places, is a charming Victorian town located on the banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers. Victorian Days is a perfect time to stroll through the town and step back into a bygone era.
