Scope and Contents note

The 74 photographs in this collection capture the bustling street life of Manhattan's Lower East Side during the late 1930's and 1940's. Many are portraits depicting street vendors, shopkeepers, mothers, and especially, kids. There is also one photograph of a ticket line in Broadway taken in the 1970's.

The majority of the photographs are vintage gelatin silver prints; there are also a few digital reproduction prints.
