SOME NEW OLD PHOTOS.......
OF SOME VERY OLD LANDMARKS
I found these in a book in the Queensboro
Library titled "The Homes Of Suffolk County " published
THE NICOLL FLOYD HOUSE
Located just north of William Floyd's
home in the area now known as Old Mastic, this home still exists.
THE MANOR OF ST. GEORGE
Though often photographed, few can
recall the north face of the manor looking like this.
The photo date is unknown but it was
1928 or earlier.
Below is the....
The South Porch
A SAD SIGHT INDEED GENERAL WOODHULL'S
IN IT'S LAST YEARS. IT WAS TORN DOWN IN 1939
AND THE LANDMARK THAT STARTED IT ALL
This Appeared in " THE TABLET
" the official paper of the Brooklyn Diocese in 1950. Mallory
Leoniak of the Brookhaven Historian's Office showed me the copy
she had and it's origin a scrap book in The Queensboro Library.
The next day I photographed it. I guess this photo by Charles
Stevens was the official photo for St. Jude's. You can see a lot
more detail and the siding on the building. However .....
I KNOW THERE ARE MORE & DIFFERENT
PHOTOS OUT THERE!
Note: Fr Skelly said it had 16 rooms....he
did not count the six bathrooms. My count was always 22
