This photograph comes from the John D. Morrell photograph collection which contains over 2,000 black-and-white and color negatives and prints from 1957-1974. Morrell was an assistant librarian at the Long Island Historical Society (now the Brooklyn Historical Society) and photographed nearly every Brooklyn neighborhood, focusing primarily on buildings and street scenes. We’ve digitized his entire collection and it is available here.
