The Long Island Railroad Station
The black and white photograph shows the Kew Gardens Long Island Railroad Station just after its completion in 1910. It probably predates even . As you can see, except for the stationhouse and the tracks, there wasn't much else.
This c. 1900 printed sepia toned picture shows Beech Street (today's 120th Street) looking north to 85th Avenue.
If you have pictures of yourself showing any Kew Gardens locale in the background, email me high resolution jpegs and I will post them here as space permits.
