One of the original 13 colonies, New Jersey achieved statehood on December 18, 1787. To celebrate the anniversary of that event this week’s Friday Foto Follies is dedicated to the Garden State, which got that moniker for being a leading producer of cranberries, blueberries and tomatoes. But the state can also boast having produced great talent in the arts. Here are a few faces from New Jersey you may recognize. In tribute.

I knew some of them, Ruth, but was also surprised at how many. And I didn’t even include them all.
