Jackie Robinson Park and Pool - Photo #12 - Colonial Park before WPA

Photo:  Schomburg Collection.
The original Colonial Park and Bradhurst Avenue, looking down from Edgecombe Avenue, early 1930s. It's hard to tell exactly which block this is because the buildings on Bradhurst Avenue have almost all been replaced by new ones and the park itself has been reconfigured. This might be a baseball game but if it is, the field is improvised; it's not a real ball field (e.g. with backstop, cleared infield) like the ones the WPA would build in 1936.
