This digital image comes from the New York Subway Museum Archive and is dated October 3, 1950. The photograph was used in connection with contract T-11 which involved bringing the Independent Subway to Coney Island via the BMT Culver Line. This view is on McDonald Avenue facing north. The car is on the west side of the street just as the Culver mainline structure turns northwest. You can see the girders that do not have tracks yet on them approaching the decline to the Church Avenue Station. Unpaved South Brooklyn Railroad tracks are in the middle of the street and are used by McDonald and McDonald-Church streetcars.
