Do you know this street?
This image was recently re-discovered in our archives when our curators were working on the Herbert Flamm photograph collection. We know only a bit about this particular photo. Perhaps you can help us fill in the details.
The photograph, one of a set of five, was taken on November 30, 1954 by Herbert Flamm, a well-known local photographer who was often commissioned to photograph streets and buildings for insurance companies. Looking closely at the image, we can see that the address number on the house at left is 111, and the number on the house at right is 121. On the telephone pole at left we can see a campaign flyer for Edward Amann Jr., who won election to the New York State Assembly in 1952, representing the North Shore of Staten Island, and served as an Assemblyman for 21 years..
