Where Was This Historical Photo Taken in Port Jeff Station?

Guess where this aerial picture was taken in the comments below.

In this aerial view taken in 1957 you can see some distiguishing landmarks of the past at the intersection of two roads in Port Jefferson Station.

Can you tell us where this is? Put your guess in the comments.

This photo comes from the archive of the Cumsewogue Historical Society and can be found on the Port Jefferson village website in the historical section.

If you are cleaning out the "junk" you've accumulated over the years and come across old photos, postcards, documents, brochures, letters, calendars or anything having to do with Terryville, Port Jefferson Station or Echo, consider donating them to the Cumsewogue Historical Society.

They are always looking for advertising items from local businesses whether they are long gone or still open. If you don't wish to part with your old photos, please consider allowing them to scan them for the archive. They will then be returned to you.

Please contact the Cumsewogue Historical Society at (631) 928-7622 or e-mail: cumsewoguehistory@yahoo.com for more information. All donations are tax deductible and you will be given a receipt for your donation.

The Cumsewogue Historical Society will meet next on Wednesday Aug. 22 at 7:30 p.m. at the Terryville Union Hall on Terryville Road in Port Jefferson Station.

The older guys (my brother ['55 Chevy] & his friends) used to race from 'Otto's' Bakery in Mt. Sinai (by just east of King Kullen) around the circle, back to the 'finish' line at the bakery. ...speaking of the 'Gentleman's track in the wood by Morgan St.....that was a place when a lot of car races was done at this time....been there many times....{i had the '57 Chevy, but, by then, the circle was gone}

...Otto's was originally located on the corner of Linden Pl. and Main St. back in the 50s and early 60s.......

Hi Patty. "Cumsewogue" is the old way of spelling what they used to call this area and it's the name that the historical society adopted to use. Here's some background: http://portjefferson.patch.com/articles/whats-in-a-name-comsewogue-or-cumsewogue
