A Throwback Thursday showing Cemetery Avenue ca. 1900. This is, of course, the road that runs from the main gate on Route 32 (Broadway) in Menands to St. Agnes Roman Catholic Cemetery and the Rural Cemetery's main offices. A few years after this photo was taken, the wooden fence lining the road was replace with the iron one which still stands. The lovely elm trees which shade the road in this photo are long gone, though; they were probably victims of the Dutch Elm Disease epidemic that destroyed many trees in the 1900s.
