Images of America - City Island et al.

The presentation contains some very memorable pictures
of the old Bronx/Westchester Line. i.e.

o the Belden Point Pier
o South End City Island
o McDaniel Bungalow (20s)
o St. Mary's Star of the Sea
o Grace Episcopal Church
o Split Rock at the Bronx/Westchester Line
o City Island Bridge (1908)

There are many scenes which contain the residents of
yesteryear. Some of the portraits may have been the
parents and grandparents of people I knew at one time.
The acquisition would be perfect for students of the
local history and culture. I remember many of these
scenes from childhood. Some still exist today.
