This picture of Holy Innocents School was taken some time in the 40's. It is looking down East 16th Street from Beverly Road. The two entrances were gender specific, one for boys and one for girls.
Keith A. Reinsdorf adds: The school was located on the northeast corner of Beverly Road and East 17th Street, with its front facing onto East 17th Street. The photo was taken from the southwest corner of the same intersection. Therefore, the view is looking mainly northward up East 17th Street.

This picture was taken in 1947 when I was 11 years old. I recall the arch as "Grand Army Plaza" right near Prospect Park. It was walking distance from our home on Pacific street.

Here's a picture of my grandparents Thomas & Virginia Pappas' store in South Brooklyn. Being that they were from Greece, having an Italian deli was quite an accomplishment! This was on the corner of Union Street and Third Avenue. I don't know when the photo was taken. There is a wreath on the window that says SUCCESS. Virginia died in 1951. Later, my dad, John, ran the store with his dad until 1961.
