Being distributed with this October 2021 “Larchmont 100” issue of the Larchmont Chronicle is a special “rotogravure” insert prepared by the paper’s staff with the assistance of a great number of people who are acknowledged on the booklet’s inside back cover.

Titled “Larchmont Boulevard: Then and Now,” the booklet salutes the pioneer and current landlords and merchants (especially the merchants) who have made the shopping district the beloved place it has been for the past 100 years. The booklet features photos of the Village since its inception. A number of the images are of Boulevard shops near the time of the Chronicle’s 1971 fifty-year salute to the Boulevard. Others are from nearly 100 years ago. Enjoy!

“LARCHMONT BOULEVARD: Then and Now” illustrates the story of the Boulevard’s commercial district between First Street and Beverly Boulevard (originally Temple Street). This collection of city lots was created by the “Windsor Heights“ and “New Windsor Square“ subdivisions in the 1920s. See above right.
