Williamsbridge Oval Historical Photos - Photo #18
Girl's Dance Festival, Williamsbridge Oval, June 30, 1945, shortly after VE
Day but before the end of the war in the Pacific. Looking north northwest
towards Tryon Avenue. NYC Parks Photo Archive. This might be the "Scotch
Sword Dance" performed here on other occasions in the 1940s. The resolution
of the photo is not very high but it looks as if there might be bleachers at
the edge of the truck, overlooking the athletic field. Most of the
buildings shown are still there (as of June 2017).
