Scope and Content Note

The Edward Wenzel Photographs primarily contain photographs and glass plate negatives of sites and buildings associated with the American Revolutionary War in Connecticut, Delaware, New Jersey, New York City, Westchester County, New York, and Pennsylvania and spans the period from 1892-1925, although the majority are undated. The current glass plate negative jackets are made from photocopies of the original negative jackets and bear N-YHS negative numbers that span from 748-843, 1051-1096, and 1180-1215. Some of the negatives also have numbers given by Wenzel, spanning 1-177. The collection is divided into three series: Photographs; Negatives; and Envelopes.
