Old, black and white photo of a close-up aerial view of development in Overbrook Farms. The railroad is in the foreground, with an overpass crossing over Woodbine Avenue. The visible road running horizontally in the image is Upland Way. The smokestack of the steam heat plant stands prominently between Upland Way and the railroad tracks. In the far distance is the tower of what is currently the Kearsley nursing facility. The homes on the opposite side of the railroad, part of Wendell & Smith's first phase of development in Overbrook Farms, still stand in the 21st century.
