Description Painting of Brookville Road and Turner Lane (Section 3), by Alexander B. Clayton
c. 1930
Mrs. Cuba Tracewell purchased this painting from Alexander Clayton, who lived at 6403 Brookeville Road on the southeast corner of Turner Lane. Before the artist moved to Bronxville, NY with his mother, he sold some of his early work from their home. The perspective of this scene is most likely from the family living room, which served as his studio. On the left hand side of the street is Section Three, while the Brookeville Road commercial strip, including a gas station, appears on the right.
