A friend on the island discovered these 6 photos circa 1968. They show the lsland before any development started in 1970.
 
Photo 1 The Welfare Island Bridge went directly to the West Road. There was no Main Street. To the south are the Cancer and Neurological Hospitals.
 
 
Photo 2  South view of area that now includes PS/IS 217 and Westview
 
 
Photo 3  A forlorn and empty Chapel of the Good Shepherd. Next to it is the Good Samaritan
              German Lutheran Church.  The buildings surrounding them were part of the City
              Home, a home for elderly, sickly and impoverished.
