SUMMARY

THE BRONX IT WAS ONLY YESTERDAY, 1935-1965 tells the story of a dynamic period in the development of New York City's northernmost borough. The depths of the Great Depression brought the New Deal to combat the economic disaster, & this was followed quickly by the ferment of the Second World War. Peacetime brought great changes in society, including a movement from the city into the suburbs & a vast influx of different ethnic groups into the city. The Bronx was also marked by islands of stability & by continuity to the past. In these decades, entertainment shifted from enjoying movies & radio to spending hours watching newly-purchased black & white television sets; transportation changed from riding trolleys, buses, & subways to automobiles; musical taste switched from big bands to rock 'n' roll. Heretofore quiet neighborhoods were disturbed by the clatter of new highways & high-rise housing complexes. The absorbing narrative of the colorful activities of these times is complemented with numerous rare photographs from the research archives of The Bronx County Historical Society. They offer a vivid glimpse into the wide-ranging changes & elements of continuity that made the Bronx a desirable residence.
