Whitney and Gerritsen Aves

Posted by Bob C Bob C

This photo was taken in 1946 at the corner of Gerritsen Ave and Whitney Ave, in front of Byrnes funeral home. From left to right: Jack McAuliffe, Harold Olsen (former owner of Tim's Grocery, Allen and Gerritsen ), George "Hammy" Hanson (from Dictum Ct) and Johnnie Halloran (from Allen Ave ). In the background you can see Resurrection School. Notice that the church hadn't been built yet. Also in the background, next to the telephone pole, you can see the old Whitney mansion. As for who owned the car in the photo, it's anyone's guess. (Courtesy Jack McAuliffe)
