Brookline Boulevard - 1928

Picture of Brookline Boulevard, 1928.

This is a photo of Brookline Boulevard in 1928, looking from the intersection with Flatbush Avenue towards Stebbins Avenue. It was the Roaring Twenties, and Brookline was in the midst of an economic and property development boom at the time.

Several new buildings stand along the commercial side of the boulevard just from Flatbush to Stebbins. These include the Boulevard Theatre and the Brookline Savings and Loan building

The streetcar tracks were used by route 39-Brookline of the Pittsburgh Railways Company and, in 1928, were still the main source of transportation for most of the local population. Judging from the many cars parked along the roadway, the automobile was picking up in popularity.
