I had guessed that the overpass/trestle crossing Tremont Avenue in the distance was the tracks of the old New York, Westchester and Boston Railroad which eventually was demolished years after the railroad stopped running in 1937. We are told that the overpass is the Bronx River Parkway. Do you remember seeing that overpass during the years that you lived in that neighborhood? If not, then it could have been demolished by 1948, the year the photo was taken. I could be mistaken, but I believe that the Bronx River Parkway overpass TODAY was constructed after 1948 and would look very differently from what seems to be a railroad trestle going over Tremont Avenue. Any thoughts about that? Looking forward to your reply. Thanks!
