1940s-era photos of Maspeth are currently on display inside of Maspeth Federal Savings Bank on 69th Street and Grand Avenue. The exhibit is called “Maspeth in the 1940's.”
The exhibit can be seen in the windows of the newly-renovated bank building; it’s easily visible from the street. The series is presented in conjunction with Q Gardens Gallery which is owned and operated by historian Ron Marzlock.
The photos on display show life in Maspeth during and after World War Two. Some of the photos featured are the opening of Maurice Park, Grand Avenue street scenes with trolleys and the interior of a cigar and candy store. It's worth a look-see.
