Fiske Terrace in Color, 1920

Fiske Terrace in Color, 1920

Brooklyn borough historian Ron Schweiger has an endless supply of stuff like this. Here, a 1920 photo looks north up Westminster Road (then East 12th before the name change) on the corner of Avenue H. It started black and white. Next, the perfect car was drawn, a few lovely apparitions floated onto the sidewalk and the picture was colored. I’d like it blown up and put on my wall, please.

Take a photo in the neighborhood lately? Send it to or add it to the Ditmas Park Corner Flickr group and we’ll post it on the blog.
