One Hundred Years Ago This Week

Cecelia was born 100 years ago this week.

So her daughters made a visit to the old neighborhood for a centennial celebration.

We had some addresses on Clermont, Adelphi and Vanderbilt Avenues in the Fort Green section of Brooklyn.

Many of the blocks are quite gentrified.

This is the house at 163 Adelphi that the McNallys and the Valentines shared according to the 1910 census.

They may still have been living there in 1911 when Cele was born.

Here she is about 19 years old in 1930.
