Mystery Friday Foto #4: A Never Before Published Photo of a Curve on the Long Island Motor Parkway


I am pleased to announce that in cooperation with Garden City Village Historian Bill Bellmer, VanderbiltCupRaces.com has obtained 139 scans of the only known copy of the 1908 Long Island Motor Parkway Construction Scrapbook from the Garden City Archives. Many of  these photos have never been published including this weekend's Mystery Foto.

Mystery Foto questions:

  • Identify the location of the Mystery Foto and the orientation of the photographer. Provide a rationale.
  • Identify the automobile and the likely owner
  • What was the likely purpose of the train on the right?

All Comments will be held until Monday night.

Enjoy,

Howard Kroplick
