Mike and Susan Bowman, who lived on Walnut Street, walked along North Ritter Avenue around 1948. Perhaps they were going to school or just out visiting friends or family. They are bundled up and the leaves are gone from the trees. Behind them, you can see 71 and 75-77 North Ritter Avenue and beyond. More wonderful photos will be forthcoming from this interesting Irvington family. The contemporary image of the same view was taken in the autumn of 2012.
