Edgemere Drive in 1924

Greece, NY during prohibition.... rounding up the hooch and destroying it (1920s)

Long Pond in 1924, looking north with trolley tracks running along Long Pond Road on the right side.

Greece used to be a great farming area for corn and apples and peaches.
Here are some peach trees in Baker's Farm (1924)

Manitou Road looking north in 1917

light rail system, for street cars, that transversed Braddock Bay about 1917

Elm trees used to be popular all over Greece, NY until the elm disease struck in the 1950s and killed off 97% of the elm trees.
Up until then, there used to be this huge tree on Latta Road on the Yates farm called the "Latta Elm". It was a visitor attraction.

Methodist Church on corner of Maiden Lane and Long Pond. The picture is from the early 1950s and I can look out my window and see the steeple right now.
