Thanks to Joe Panzarella for a trio of photos of East 138th Street, taken from his Mom's window, available for viewing in our ever-growing PHOTO GALLERY. If anyone can identify the elevated structure in thos photos, we'd love to hear from you.
As expected, the previous mystery photo was quickly identified by many who either grew up nearby or who knew only too well what the little sliver of a building was at the left of the image. Our first MYSTERY PHOTO for the new year may not be as familiar to many. As usual, we plead that those who don't know it try guessing without using web tools to spoil the fun. Thanks and happy new year!
Special thanks to Jeanne Hamrick for an incredibly well-preserved photo of the 1933 class from P.S. 16, one of the oldest in our collection. It's available for you to see in our CLASS PICTURES GALLERY, the largest collection of its type on the internet!
