Do you know England?

Do you know England - SIHS 50.015.3523-700pxThis is a special Do You Know for our friends across the pond. Among the more than 7,000 images in Historic Richmond Town’s Alice Austen Photograph Collection are hundreds of photos taken by Alice while traveling in Europe. In 1903, Alice visited England and photographed many wonderful sights along the way, but we do not know the locations of the buildings and towns that appear in her England photos.

This image is just one of over 7,000 Alice Austen images that were recently digitized by Historic Richmond Town.  It's also part of a large set that has never been published or seen in public before!

Do you know the Shalimar?

Shalimar-SIHS-HRT-790220639This image was recently re-discovered in our archives when our curators were working on the Herbert Flamm photograph collection. The photo, dated October 21, 1968, shows the Shalimar catering hall on Hylan Boulevard in New Dorp.

Were you at the Shalimar's first event?  Do you have another Shalimar memory? Tell us about it.
Even though it became the Excelsior Grand in 1993, the Shalimar lives on in the memories of Staten Island residents.

Share your stories with us! Does the Shalimar hold a special place in your heart because you were married there, went to a prom party, or attended another special event? Did you work there as a waiter or waitress? Does your family photo album have pictures of you dressed to impress while attending a party at the Shalimar?
