when a walk along Eighth Avenue in Brooklyn was like
visiting a Scandinavian shopping district?
a look at this "street map" and collection of old
advertisements, painstakingly collected from the archives of
various publications by Arnie Bergman, and see if the names
of the many stores and shops evoke a memory or a recollection
of days gone by. Begin the tour below, and
don't forget to turn on your speakers, and use the controls to start & stop as you wish.
also started a collection of vintage photographs of old Eighth
here to view the pictures and perhaps recognize
a familiar face or storefront! If you have any old photos you
would like to add to our online collection, please email
. All photos will be returned safely.
If you don't hear any music, you may need to download the free Flash player
which you can get here.
