Do you know this street?

Do You Know photo May 2015 700pxThis 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..

Do you live in one of these houses, or do you recognize the street or neighborhood? If you have some information that could help us, please click on the link below to fill out a response form.

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!
