This was Lucky's Lingerie shop on 170th Street near Walton Avenue, sometime in the mid-1970s.
Looking west towards Jerome Avenue, this was taken on Mt. Eden Avenue in the mid-1970s. The Surrey Theater had closed for good by then.
Editor's Note: The bleakness of this image reflects the urban blight that was infecting many Bronx neighborhoods during the 60s and 70s.
This was the Villa Avenue Italian feast "grease pole."
Editor's Note: This appears to be in front of 3177 Villa Avenue, between E. 205th St. and Van Cortlandt Ave. East. Based on the hairstyles and other clues, it was probably taken in the early 1970s.
This was Public School 77, circa 1929. It was new at the time. It was located on East 172nd Street between Ward and Boynton Avenues. The school originally went to the 8th grade but in 1953 the school board introduced Junior High Schools and students were transferred to a newly constructed school nearby.
