Historical Views by Emil Lucev

Historical Views continues this week with photos from the extremely cold and stormy winter of 1920.

The two photos shown this week are of the buildings on the Holland Dock (today, Beach 92 Street) show that the heavy buildings atop the wooden pilings kept the them from being pulled out of the ice by the rising tide.

Photo one was taken from far out on the Dock facing southwest toward the railroad embankment on the shore.

Photo two was taken from a building on the west side, looking southeast toward the railroad embankment.

Other than the collapsed side of a building or the access walk in photo one, the buildings look to be in fine shape.

I sincerely hope I have oriented the photos correctly. There were no remarks with either photo.
