    I graduated from St. Anns in 1949. The gas tanks were across the street from the school . Also next to the school was the chicken slaughter house Every so often a chicken without a head would get loose and run the street. On the 111th st side of the tanks was a horse stable where the tahe vendors would pick up their wagons and start selling vegetables, fruits, potatos and ice for the ice boxes .not too many refrigerators at that rime

    Thanks for sharing. The pictures are terrific. I grew up on 112th & 1st Ave. I remember those gas tanks. The big kids told me that if I could threw a lit match high enough to get it to land in one of those tanks it would explode! I also remember the nearby Boys Club where I spent so much time playing games and making things. SB

    My Grandfather had a plumbing shop on E. 109th Street between 1st & 2nd Avenue.
    And my uncle Patsy had a candy store on that 109th as well. Love these photos.
