Re: [PHOTO] They Demolished A Building And Look What Was Exposed

I looked into it. According to this map, McEnery's furniture was there in 1916, or 1921.

The same site was occupied by Phelans, also a furniture store, in 1929.

Finally, in 1940, it was J. Michaels. Note that as a corner building it also had a Lawrence St. address. Also note the photo shows another building on the near corner with a visible "84 Furniture" sign. That appears to be Mullins, which was on the SW corner of Myrtle and Lawrence, so it was in the foreground of your photo.

Also see McEnery's listing at "86 Myrtle" in this 1921 Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce bulletin.

James McEnery died in 1918 so it was likely that the business was sold soon after.
