Corner Market 1935.jpg
Graham & Metropolitan
Photo: Percy Loomis Sperr (1935)
via re-Brooklyn

Re-Brooklyn is a new website with some nice Brooklyn then-and-now photos. When we saw this photo, we thought we had already been there back in March of 2007, but as it turns out, there's more than one vintage photo of the corner of Graham and Metropolitan. For the record, re-Brooklyn's photo is by Percy Loomis Sperr (taken in 1935); our photo is by Berenice Abbot (taken in 1937). Between the two photos, the advertising on the side of the building changed.

We've been collecting then and now photos of our own, and are planning on restarting the tradition, so stay tuned.
