Hi Paul!

The Daughters of Jacob Home on East 167th Street between Findlay and Teller Avenues is the Bronx Board`s very first Mystery Photo! When I saw it, I recognized it immediately, as I remember, during my early childhood years, my frequent visits there to my paternal grandmother who was a resident of the Home from 1942 until her passing in 1948.

It`s hard to believe that the very tall, majestic wheel-shaped building with SIX extensions protruding outward from its circular rotunda, cost only $350K. What a surprise!!!
