This vintage picture postcard shows the view on Hillside Avenue looking east from 118th Street in Richmond Hill, NY. The Vetter Mansion (later, the Simonson Funeral Home) can be seen in the background. The Richmond Hill Library is offscreen to the right.|
This postcard was made from a photograph which was tinted (i.e. colorized). It is obvious that the leaves on the trees were drawn in since the shadows cast on the ground are of leafless branches.
