Which Historic Charm? Pt. 7

March 16, 2011

Via sweetpea11215 on Flickr, here’s a great postcard shot of Grand Army Plaza from around 1905.  (Judging by the copyright, not the handwriting.)  In the right half of the picture, you can see a man pushing a handcart in the circle, perhaps someone going about his job.  Today, anyone pushing a cart through GAP would most likely be certifiably crazy.  And what would a picture of Park Slope be without someone pushing a stroller?  The more things change…

    That’s taken from the park entrance between PPW and the park drives, yes?

    East: vs.

    (the snake planters are south of the camera in the Google Maps images)
