The Hampton House Apartments Under Construction
The first sepia toned image is from a 1947 newspaper article annoucing the construction of a new apartment building at 82nd Road and Queens Boulevard - the Hampton House Apartments. The black and white photograph shows workmen at the construction site taking a break. The view is looking west on Queens Boulevard from 82nd Road. The color photograph taken last year shows that same view today.
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.
