Photo of the Week: Holiday Carolers

Carolers at Williamsburgh Savings Bank Building, ca. 1956, V2006.001.1.129; Williamsburgh Savings Bank Building photographs and architectural drawings, ARC.116; Brooklyn Historical Society.

The children pictured above are carolers from PS 9, located in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, singing around a piano and office desk in the Williamsburgh Savings Bank building in 1956. Some of our staff members have recently joined the ranks of Christmas Carolers, singing at Albee Square in partnership with the Downtown Brooklyn Arts Alliance. As the holidays continue here in Brooklyn, we are thinking of our neighbors in Newtown, Connecticut and throughout the City. We wish everyone a safe, reflective, and healing New Year.

Happy Holidays to you and your family,
Brooklyn Historical Society Staff
