The Parks Department displayed a photo of a long-ago flower show at the greenhouse, which was built in 1905.
Rows of colorful flowers, including these geraniums, line the inside of the greenhouse.
The renovated Forest Park greenhouse opened on Monday, and city Parks Department officials said it will grow about 250,000 plants annually.
The flowers at the greenhouse will be shipped all over the borough — and city.

Students and teachers from St. John Evangelical Lutheran School in Glendale attended the opening on Monday morning.
