Biographical / Historical

The lists of slides included in the collection refer to various locales that are no longer in the boxes. Some of these refer to Asbury Park, New Jersey, indicating it was "home." That suggests that these images were taken by someone making occasional day trips to New York City. It is not known if the donor, Patricia Evans, was the photographer or someone she knew or was related to.
