A Tree Falls in Irvington--c.1948

This giant tree fell across South Audubon Road sometime in the late 1940s. Note that the street used to be brick. In the background you can see 358 S. Audubon located at the southwest corner of Audubon Road and Beechwood Avenue. Michael Hunt and some of his friends pose atop the fallen tree. This image is courtesy of Helen Hunt.
