About This Image
This photograph is from the first annual report of the Board of Commissioners of the Department of Public Parks, for the year ending May 1, 1871.
Shows two horse-drawn wagons with water barrels, and other vehicles - one was probably for unloading the cobblestones and the other for flattening the roadway. At least 7 workers can be seen in the photograph. There are granite slabs on the Park side of the avenue and piles of stones on the other side.
Caption below photograph reads, "Sixth Avenue - North of the Central Park." At this time Sixth Avenue ran from 110th Street to the Harlem River. Later Sixth Avenue was changed to Lenox Ave, and it is currently called Malcolm X Boulevard.
