Larry Wolff recently found at a garage sale a 1978 edition of “Old Brooklyn in Early Photographs 1865 – 1929”

While browsing through the pages he noticed a familiar picture. One that was always on his grandmother’s dresser. After confirming that the photo in the book and the one on the dresser were the same he made some family inquires.

The snappy looking gentlemen in the photo turned out to be his Great-Grandfather, Peter Meehan, born 1859 and born in the County of Leithrim.

He was the driver of the last horse drawn delivery wagon in Brooklyn NY. Peter Meehan delivered residential packages for the “Namm Store” located at Fulton and Hoyt Streets.

The building itself, where this photo was taken, was the Brooklyn landmark “Alhambra Apartment House” located at Nostrand Ave between Macon and Halsey Street.
