Series I: Photographs

Scope and Contents note

Series I is the largest of the series and contains a variety of color and black and white photographs and contact prints. The series is divided into four subseries: Manhattan Properties, New Jersey Properties, New York State Properties, and Cross & Brown Company photographs. Most of these images were used primarily in promotional publications, some of which can be found in Series IV. Most photographs are of building exteriors, but a few interior views are included.

Photographs of Manhattan buildings date from the early 1970s through 1991, and primarily depict large office buildings. Images are arranged alphabetically by named streets, which are followed by numbered avenues and numbered streets; thereunder photographs are arranged by address.

The New Jersey Properties subseries consists of only one property, located in northern Bergen County on Livingston Avenue.

New York State Properties include a variety of sites, mostly commercial or industrial, arranged alphabetically by town. Most are located within a one hundred mile radius of New York City. Properties in the outer boroughs of New York City are included in this subseries, reflecting Cross & Brown's original filing scheme. The largest groupings depict properties in Brooklyn, Queens, and White Plains.

Company photographs date entirely from the 1980s, and include portraits of Cross & Brown Company employees, arranged alphabetically by name, and photographs of company seminars and meetings, arranged chronologically.
