From Bob Grove This is really an amazing image from 1922. This is Livingston Ave. at Oakwood Ave looking to the Northwest. This is an empty lot today In 1922 this was a small business district on a major streetcar line. The Oakwood pharmacy is at 1092 Livingston Ave., an A&P Grocery was at 1094 Livingston Ave., the Frank P Hall Hardware was at 1098 Livingston Ave.and then a small bakery.
