Helmar History

Here’s a great Helmar photo from 84 years ago today…


Visit our current auctions of hand-made cards here!

I love this great black & white photo of a neighborhood shop. Of course I was first attracted to the large Helmar sign across the facing but the details really place you in the scene. The shop was at 87 Tillary Street, Brooklyn, and was taken on Sunday, November 27, 1927. Broadcaster Vin Scully, the voice of the Dodgers, was born nearby that same day.

Apparently the building doesn’t exist anymore but it was quite near where the post office is today. Enjoy.
