poster for Victor Prevost ”Early photographs of New York”

This event has ended.

The images in the Prevost Collection of the N-YHS Library document significant buildings and scenes in New York City and its environs. Prevost especially liked to photograph the buildings on Broadway, and further north, on Bloomingdale Avenue. He also photographed a number of sculptures at the Crystal Palace exhibition building which was built in 1853 but burned to the ground in 1858. The N-YHS exhibition will include all of these images and a few of the wax paper negatives which are works of art in their own right.
