Day 22/100: This was a #tbt from yesterday that didn’t load because the wifi in my hotel in #Spain sucked however….This photo is fitting because it’s my great grandparents’ house on 57th Avenue in #Elmhurst that they settled into in 1941, a few years after immigrating from #Spain. This was taken in 1940 (a year before they bought it), and I’ve been told that it used to house tourists (hence the sign) from the World’s Fair. Everyone in my family has lived here at some point in their lives–including myself. The house is still in my family (now @emilias_kids after my great-grandmother). #theoriginalqueenskids #elmhurst #españa #elmhurstny #queens #queensnyc #queenshistory #queenscapes #itsinqueens #heartofqueens #100DaysOfQueens
