1975 51st Street
Tax Photo Circa 1940
Bill and Lillian's children, William, Gerard and Muriel, were single and living together in 1940 at 1975 51st Street, in Brooklyn.
A few blocks away lived the Kavanagh family: John P. Kavanagh and his wife Margaret F. (McCarthy), and their children, including a son, William Kavanagh, and a daughter, Eleanor Mary Kavanagh.
The Lau and Kavanagh men were primarily longshoremen and probably worked at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
Between 1939 and 1941, New York City photographed every building in the five boroughs for tax purposes.
This photo of the building at 1975 51st Street is
from that collection.
