New York Life at the Turn of the Century in Photographs (New York City)
by Joseph Byron
Publisher's Description
The Museum of the City of New York houses the Joseph Byron collection of 10,000 photographs taken between 1888 and 1942. The Byron family arrived in New York from Europe and set up business as documentary photographers of all aspects of day-to-day city living. They quickly became one of the most famous photography firms in existence. The 122 remarkable photographs included in this book, show street scenes, commercial interiors, restaurants, hotels, recreation, parades, etc. All are taken from the Byron archives and go beyond the strictly nostalgic photograph to become a permanent documentation of life at the turn of the century in New York.
