Bronx: The Club, N.d. [c.1925], Large folding prospectus for the Bronx club on the Long Island Sound, at the extreme eastern end of 177th St. Promising to be a "Maine Resort right in the Bronx" with facilities for "swimming, boating, fishing, sailing, miniature golf, handball, tennis, dancing, bowling, billiards, cards, and dining", and backed by Bronx political heavyweights like Bruckner and Deegan, the project appears to have not been realized. Large folding sheet 46 x 56 cm; illustrated from drawings of proposed clubhouse and bathers. With list of members and backers. Small tear to fold at center; else a good copy or better.
