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).
