Below: looking east toward Brighton Avenue bridge over 2nd River; Orange branch of Erie Railroad runs alongside river on left; Saint Paul's Church, later known as Holy Name Catholic Church is on right; postcard says"Hamburg Avenue" instead of Brighton, but no mention of a Hamburg Avenue can be seen on maps going back as far as 1895.
