Can You Identify This Historical Photo?

The Hampton Bays Historical Society digs into its archives.

Each week, we will feature a local historical photo from the archives of the  and ask readers to guess what is pictured, the date the photo was taken and/or what is there today.

If you think you know the answer, let us know in the comment section below. We will let you know if you're right next Friday when we post the next photo challenge.

Last week's photo, according to Brenda Berntson, said that Patch reader  was right in saying, "The bridge in the foreground is the old rail road bridge and the bridge in the back ground is the old green traffic bridge. Because the green bridge was built with braces across the inside top, so often large trucks would get stuck under it and they would hammer away at the brace trying to free the truck. As a result towards the end of the bridges life the braces were quite twisted. As a kid you would pray that a truck would be stuck if you were going to school from Hampton Bays to Sacred Hearts in Southampton, you always could count on being late."

The old Hampton Bays School house. Taken down in the 60's.

Alfred is right..that is the Hampton Bays School Building taken down and replaced with the brick building that faces Ponquogue Avenue now.

The brick building was built before the old wood school house was torn down. Part of the NE wing replaces it.
