Photographs of Brooklyn statuary and building ornamentation by John J. Gallagher. Presented by Gallagher at the Montauk Club on October 24, 1991. The photographs were originally taken from 1988-1989 (see Sub-series 4.1: Brooklyn and Historic Preservation prints and negatives). There are four series of numbered slides in the set: One numbered 1-120, which was missing slides 54-55, 108-109, and 111-112; one numbered 181-187; one numbered 37-54, of which the 49th slide was labeled "No Pix"; and one numbered 1-19, which was missing slide 3. Also included were numerous unnumbered slides mixed among some of the numbered sets. It is probable that the numbers on certain slide pages had worn off prior to donation. In addition to the slides, there are prints and negatives of the images available in Box 38.
