This photograph comes from the John D. Morrell photographs collection comprised of roughly 2,000 black and white and color negative prints and photographs. John D. Morrell was an assistant librarian at Long Island Historical Society (now Brooklyn Historical Society) for many years and documented nearly ever Brooklyn neighborhood between 1957 and 1974. Lucky for us, Morrell provided descriptions of each photograph, and now the photographs are fully digitized and available online. If you’re interested in Brooklyn housing and building research, be sure to check out this rich collection.
