This vintage photograph shows the quiet residential Queens neighborhood of Middle Village back in the early 1940s.

Here’s what the street scene looked like on Metropolitan Avenue near 74th Street in Middle Village in this undated photo taken during the 1940s. […] Note the two-light traffic signal at left; the three-light signal wouldn’t come for several more decades.
