New York, N.Y.

I squealed with delight when I found these wonderful vintage images of New York City yesterday while on the prowl for treasures.

I haven't had a chance to research them yet but I think they are from the 1920's or 30's.

I just love the wide open, expansiveness of New York back then when the city was rife with opportunity!

There are a total of 12.

8 are of and around New York City.

3 are of Central Park

1 is of Columbia University.

3 are vertical and 9 are horizontal,

which gives a lot of versatility in how they can be arranged.

Having 12 to work with also allows the possibility of splitting them into several groupings depending on your wall space or room.

Each image measures approx. 5 1/4 x 7 1/2.

I will be offering them as I found them, which is mounted on heather gray medium stock paper.  The buyer can then have them framed as they wish.

Great old photos and they are certainly far from home.

These are fun because they show S.F.-like trolleys in NYC!

They look much older than that Terri. You might want to contact MOMA and have the New York ones evaluated. I would say they look to be from around the late 1800's. They remind me of Eadweard Muybridge who is on exhibit right now at S.F. MOMA. He used a panoramic camera to shoot the city. Check it out! The first couple photos of New York took a very special camera it appears. Love the building to the upper train level. What a beauty. (5th photo down.)

Very interesting pictures. They will look awesome in black frames with white matting.

So fun to see how things were way back when!! It always amazes me how far we have come and I wonder how old fashioned our surroundings will look in 70-80 years. Always amazes me. Fun find, Miss Terri,Kathysue

Wow that is so precious, I am planning to move to NY on fall and if I wasn't so scared with the high cost of living I would love to purchase those items!

These are marvelous and I agree with cjsullivan - these look older than the 20's or 30's to me! I love the idea of them all framed together en masse together on one wall - fabulous!!

What a great find! I've actually never seen old NY photos before where it looked so open and uncongested! So interesting and they'll make a great grouping! :)
