I have been checking out the archive that Alan linked to above. Every time I look I find more images that I have not seen before partly because they are often not labeled correctly. The image that he posted of “Godwin’s Island” is labeled as “Small unidentified bridge [over Westchester Creek?], Bronx, N.Y. [?], undated [c. 1897-1918?].” In reality this was at today’s W 230th St. and Broadway.
The great thing about these photos is that you can zoom in on them forever. Check out this one I found of the King’s Bridge that was also incorrectly labeled:
Check out how close up you can get with zooming:
The level of detail is pretty amazing. J.B. James refers to the oysters you could get in Kingsbridge and there they are at “Liesler’s Fancy Groceries and Delicatessen.”
