Another shot of old East 10th Street

Following up on our earlier post today on 10th Street and Avenue A.... EV Grieve reader Mykola (Mick) Dementiuk sent along this Morris Engel photo from the 1950s of 10th Street between Avenue A and First Avenue (looking northwest).

Holy crap! Is that a street carousel? Awesome pic!

The thing that always jumps out in photos of this era is the lack of bumper-to-bumper parked cars. Seems that came later, in the 60s and 70s. And is that some sort of kiddie-carousel? Great shot of a (mostly) unchanged block.
