Boy On The Street, Columbus Avenue And 101st Street In Harlem, NY, 1920

August 11, 2017

It’s 1920 in Harlem, at 140 West 102nd Street, on the south side between Amsterdam and [easyazon_link identifier=”B007WPMUQI” locale=”US” tag=”harlemworld-20″]Columbus Avenues[/easyazon_link] and 101st to 102nd Streets, Harlem, New York.

Surrounded by beautiful architectural structures on the right with a young boy or girl faces us playing in the street, the verticle Garage sign points towards the two Harlem made Nash Motors cars and an antique lamp pole at P.S. 179.

We cannot read the writing in the photograph written in white right below the child (says, any assistance will be helpful).
