Brookline Boulevard - 1912

Brookline Boulevard, 1912

Here is a 1912 photo of Brookline Boulevard, taken from near Flatbush Avenue looking in the direction of Stebbins Avenue. Further down the Boulevard are the Freehold Real Estate Building at Queensboro Avenue and the United Presbyterian Church's Stone Chapel on Chelton Avenue. The newly constructed Resurrection Elementary School and Church stand high atop Creedmoor Avenue in the distance. The home on the left is 907 Brookline Boulevard. Horse drawn buggies and the trolley line were the prefered method of transportation. There is also a lot of pedestrian traffic along the Boulevard.
