Beautiful Old Wooden Houses


Here is a photo of a woman pushing a baby carriage, circa 1930, past some old wooden houses. According to the Brooklyn Public Library, the location is “unknown but possibly showing the site of the future housing project bound by Bergen and Pacific Streets and by Ralph and Rochester Avenues.”

I love this photo because it really captures the texture of these houses. Something lost with all the synthetic siding that went up later in the century.

    Love how intricate the doorways are! I wonder if these houses are still standing or if they’ve been replaced with newer structures.
