Happy Holidays Inwood!

And what would the season be without a few memories of yesteryear? The accompanying photos were taken on Broadway near Academy Street in December of 1925.

The city was entering its fifth year of Prohibition and the Great Depression was just around the corner.

Sure the times were a bit different, but the tradition of a Christmas tree stand on Broadway has changed very little since these photos were taken some eighty-five years ago.

Of course I imagine the prices have gone up just a wee bit since 1925.
