Brewster Road, 1930

Landscapers work on Brewster Road in the Forest Hill development in 1930. Brewster Road and the streets around it were the first areas to be developed in Forest Hill. In the background, still under construction, is one of the original 81 Norman-style houses designed by architect Andrew J. Thomas. Thomas also carefully designed the landscaping in the neighborhood to maximize its visual appeal, for instance planting flowering crabapple trees, American rhododendrons and Japanese azaleas.
