Who can guess the original location of the Silver Rail Bar from this photo taken in 1948? This block of buildings no longer exist today but a clue is hidden in the background that indicates the location. We have seen photo of the Silver Rail a couple of decades later when it moved to another location on 125th Street but not many will remember this first address.
ANSWER: This is what the block between 124th and 125th Street on 8th Avenue used to look decades before the arrival of the Harlem USA commercial complex on 125th Street. The Dwyer warehouse sign can be seen to the south which today are condominiums.
