This photo was taken around 1942 to 1945. My father owned this watch repair/jewelery business at 1137 Flatbush Avenue, just off the corner of Claredon Road. We lived around the corner on Claredon Road. My grandparents, who lived a block away in an apartment on Cortelyou Road, used to work at the Rialto Movie Theater on Flatbush Avenue.

This photo was taken in 1968 at the entrance to Astroland on the boardwalk at Coney Island. This statue was huge. My sister and I are at his feet; I am in the stroller.

This was Ebbets Field, taken from Bedford Avenue on July 4, 1936. I was 15 years old. Note the cobblestones. There probably was a doubleheader that holiday as there almost always was. Ebbets Field was our 'Field Of Dreams' back then...still missed by us old folks.

This was my husband's grandfather's store on Union Street between Bond and Union Street taken in 1940. We know the year because that is my mother-in-law and her sister, both pregnant with my husband and his cousin.

This picture of me getting smooched on the day of my First Communion was taken in 1951 on Avenue K, with East 40th Street behind us. Two blocks further behind us was P.S. 119 and Flatbush Avenue one block beyond that.

This was my Dad's auto parts shop at 847 New Lots Avenue between Shepperd Avenue and Essex Street. On the same block as his shop was Floyd's Chinese Laundry (right next door), Carauana Brothers Grocery, and a hardware store on the corner of Shepperd Avenue. To the left of his shop was a driveway, then an apartment house and Frank the shoemaker on the corner of Essex Street. The name "P&P" came from my father, Anthony Panzarella, and his partner Frank Pecora. They first opened in 1952 on the corner of Shepperd and New Lots, then moved to this location a couple of years later. Believe it or not this store used to be the Brooklyn Public Library. The store is long gone now; the whole square block was torn down to make room for "new" housing.
