Back In THE BRONX - The way it was!


Then & Now

East Tremont Avenue & Park Avenue (east)

Again, this turn of the century postcard shows the business artery of east Tremont with the Third Ave El in the distance. Horses still dominated the scene, although the trolley car system was in place and the automobile was looming in the near future. The long-established firm of Shipman’s Stationery is visible at left (on postcard) at 447 East Tremont Avenue.
