Boys in Front of 14th Street Theater, 1916

Boys in Front of 14th Street Theater, 1916

These boys, just exiting a the Fourteenth Street Theater, look like they are having the time of their lives. It's a beautiful spring day, April 30, 1916 to be exact, and nothing could be better than seeing an auto-racing movie and then palling around New York City with your chums. It's unlikely any of these boys knew or cared, but the theater they just exited had only recently become the "Downtown Home of Paramount Pictures." It had been built in 1866 as the Theater Francais and originally staged French comic operas.

The Photographer on Bow Bridge, 1875

The Photographer on Bow Bridge, 1875

In this 1875 photograph, the photographer himself is the subject. He stands on Bow Bridge in Central Park above a placid lake, which reflect both him and the bridge. The leaves on the trees are sparse, indicating that this could be late fall or early spring. The image almost has an Impressionistic quality, as if the photographer were trying to mimic the work of Monet.
