I don’t really know where I came across this link (damn my bad memory!) but I kept the tab open because it struck a chord with me.
Marc Hermann has blended old news photos with pictures from news back in the day. Like this one:
923 44th St – July 1, 1928. Original photographer unknown. Frankie Yale, a gangster known as the “Al Capone of Brooklyn,” lost out to rivals as he drove a Lincoln coupe through the streets of Boro Park. He lost control of his car and smashed into the front stoop of a house on 44th Street. The block is quiet today, but the building still stands – as does the tree at right, the only living witness to the mayhem of a past era.
