Brad Shupe at the Mastics Moriches Shirley Library sent me these recent aquisitions to try an ID. Other than the train station I'm stumped....anyone out there recognise anyplace or anybody in the pics?
It's taken on the stations east side as the new Mastic Firehall is visible in the background
The lawn sign says " _____ " Doll House most likely in reference to the bungalow in the background
That's one very fine 1937 Ford sedan the lady is sitting on...but it was only about three years old ...would love to have it
Those houses in the background could very well be there today.
A gentleman of leisure......
If you recognize anyone or anything ...get in touch.......
AND SOMEONE WITH THE E MAIL ADDRESS NASCARMEEMOM DID :
THIS E MAIL CAME IN WHEN I WAS AWAY BUT THEY DIDN'T TELL ME THEIR NAME .
Ken: After reading the story in "Newsday" and having spent my childhood summers in Mastic Beach, I believe I know the location of the houses in the pictures "Somewhere in Mastic". They were in Section 4 on Elder Drive and Elm Road. To the right of the houses in the picture was the year round home of William Hetzle which I later learned had burned down. The house on the left belonged to the Oldham family I believe. My grandparents built the bungalow directly across from the Hetzle home. Next to our property on the left, was the small bungalow known as the "Doll House". The pictures taken of the ladies were from the "Doll House " property. I do have a few pictures that show the houses in question.
