A Park Slope high school is looking for a few good old men (and women).
Starting this fall, students from the Secondary School for Research on Seventh Avenue will begin videotaping lifers to archive the oral history of the neighborhood.
Youngsters will certainly want to hear about the days when trolleys still needed to be dodged and how Grand Army Plaza looked in 1918, a photo of which still delights the eye in the book “Park Slope: A Photographic Retrospective.”
And who wouldn’t want to hear the gossip from stroller moms, circa 1928? A image from the book shows a well-dressed mother hen pushing charges near 10th Street in front of Knox Hats.
In other words, the more things change, etc.
