The top 2 images are from my maternal grandmother’s photo album. The bottom image is from the Times Ledger, proudly serving Queens since 1919. I think these photos were all taken on the same Crocheron Hill. The hill is now part of a park. According to the park’s history, when the 1914 and 1922 photos were taken, this area was the unused and undeveloped estate grounds of the Crocheron family.

    These photo’s are incredible! I just love old photographs. Not only do they look great, but it’s something about holding something that old (essentially paper that’s lasted) especially when its connected to your family. 🙂

      I enjoy looking at old pictures and catching a glimpse at lives and family I know only in a different time and place. It makes them more real.

      Thanks. My blog gives me an excuse to look at old family photos and really study them rather than just casually page through. It has helped me feel more connected to my roots.
