This Old House

This is the house I grew up in, located at 62-58 83rd Place, in Middle Village New York (click for larger image). My Great-Grandparents purchased the house in the late 1930's and it remained in the family up until about 2000. The source of this photograph is the City of New York who, between 1939 and 1941, took pictures of every structure in the five boroughs for the purpose of assessing property tax.
