Central Park Photos, Ca. 1900

Ten original photographs of Central Park, Ca. 1900, showing the roadways running by and through it.

New York: Ca. 1900.

1 vols. 4 x 5 inches. Central Park Photos, Ca. 1900. Fine condition Item #29486

An unusual set of turn-of-the-century photographs in that they concentrate not on the Park itself but on the avenues bordering it and the cobble-stone traverses. Present are several trolley cars, horse-drawn carts, pedestrians, buildings (apartments on the west side, and the still-extant park police station) and, in two cases, the shadow of the photographer! A curious collection, possibly done with some grading, paving, or engineering project in mind.
