Do you know Joe's Clam House?
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 image is from Staten Island, New York, and dates back to 1950. As you can see from the photograph, Joe's Clam House sold seafood and groceries, and he also sold R&H Beer, which was brewed right here on Staten Island. If you look closely at the display windows, you can see that he's selling potatoes at the price of 49 cents for 5 pounds. The photo was taken by Herbert Flamm, a well-known local photographer who was often commissioned to photograph stores, restaurants, factories, and other businesses.
