Yalecrest Streetscapes – Then and Now

We have been able to find some photographs of a few scenes in Yalecrest taken about seventy-five or eighty years ago that we’d like to share. It is fun to see those scenes and how they compare to the same scenes today. The trees have certainly grown and some are gone. It is comforting to see the houses that have so distinctively defined our neighborhood over the years that are still here.
