Construction Of The Old Third Avenue El Train in Harlem NY 1887

This photo, which shows the construction of the old Third Avenue El train in 1887 at 143rd Street, gives you a feel for what Harlem looked like near the Hall homestead only 130 years ago.

The photograph is a very early image taken of the base supports for the El train long before the full structure for the train was built.
