The Pony of South Audubon Road--1928

Dandy lived in a small barn on the Vollrath lot at 218 South Audubon Road.  The pony became a fixture for those who lived in southern Irvington as usually one or possibly two Vollrath children went for a stroll.  In these historic photos, Victor Vollrath attempts to do tricks with the pony on a sidelot just south of the Vollrath home.  The doubles visible across the street were relatively new when this photo was taken as builders only completed the dwellings in the early 1920s.  A contemporary image shows those same structures in 2012.  The historic image is courtesy of Dr. Victor Vollrath.
