Description Showing buildings on Lot 26, in Block 6314, and the right-of-way of the Nassau Electric Railroad [direction: A little west of south] Image prior to construction of the elevated BMT West End Line. This line was built under the Dual Contracts of 1913.

At the time of the photo, the BRT operated elevated trains over these tracks using trolley wired electricity. These tracks were retained for use by trolley lines after the elevated was built over them.
