The Brooklyn Bridge and the Heights in 1899
The Waterfront At Montague Street, 1899
Looking N.E. from the Temple Bar building at 44 Court Street, corner of Joralemon Streets in 1912
I just recently came across these great aerial views of of the Brooklyn Heights area, including the Brooklyn Bridge and the waterfront. It is amazing to me how much has changed and yet, how much remains the same.
I can't help it, but my favorite photo is the one taken from the Temple Bar building at 44 Court Street. If you look closely at the bottom left hand side of the photo, you can detect white shirts drying on a clothe line.
It reminded me of this wonderful old postcard I found a while back. It dates from around the same time.
