This is Bayridge Avenue in May 1924,
looking from near Queensboro Avenue northwest towards Stebbins Avenue.
The street had not yet been paved the sidewalks were still planks. The
homes were new and soon all of the lots would be occupied. Development
in Brookline was booming, and many of the roads were being lined with
sewers and paved with brick or block. Bayridge would soon be transformed
from a dirt path to a modern roadway.
