This was the home of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, located at 1130 Grand Concourse, just south of the corner of McClellan Street. This picture was taken in 1928. Just after World War II, the building became the home of the Bronx YM-YWHA, and still stands today as a community "Citizens Advice Bureau."

This picture was taken sometime in the late 1910s or early 1920s. My Grandfather, Charles Y. Turner, may have taken this on 146th Street. My Mother, Edna Turner Leveridge, said this photo shows the High Bridge which connects the Bronx to Manhattan. My grandfather would take pictures and develop many photos himself and she believes this was taken by her father. My Grandparents, Charles and Ethel Turner were longtime residents of the Bronx.

This is a 1938 view of the White Castle Hamburger place on Fordham Road at Lorillard Place. P.S. 45 is on the right.

This is Gun Hill Road and Tryon Avenue in May, 1947. I am the geek holding the stroller.

This was the Square Theater on Westchester square. Sadly, it closed down many years ago.

--Don S.

Editor's Note: Based on the titles on the marquee, this picture was probably taken in 1941 or 1942. The Square Theatre was located on Tremont Avenue, between Fink and Westchester Avenues. It closed for good in 1981.

This picture of East 179th Street and Daly Avenue was taken in 1961. Many a good game of stick ball was played there.

Looking northward along the Grand Concourse from 188th Street, this was the brand-new underpass at Fordham Road in 1925.

Taken in late 1973, this picture captures part of the Third Avenue El station at 183rd Street and Third Avenue. At the time this picture was taken, the El was no longer operating and scheduled for demolition.

--Paul H.

Also taken in 1973, this pictures shows the northern terminus of the former Third Avenue El at Gun Hill Road and White Plains Avenue, where it connected with the White Plains Road IRT.

Editor's Note: Just beyond the Sunoco Station in this image was the site of the original Pop Hoenig's Bike Shop. Also on that block was Louis' Italian Restaurant, site of the crucial assassination scene from The Godfather.

This was Bathgate Avenue between Claremont Parkway and 172nd Street. This picture was taken in 1936 during the depression, when the bargains there were a strong lure for most working-class (and out of work) Bronx residents. My parents walked over a mile each way to shop on Bathgate Avenue.
