Our Mission

To help every collector, decorator, and designer select photos that are worthy of their passion for New York.

Our Collection

With just over 5,000 images, mostly photographed between 1880-1950, the H.A. Dunne Archive is one of the most extensive and unique vintage NYC photo collections in the world. The majority of the images were the personal collection of Hugh A. Dunne, a life-long New Yorker who had an enduring love for his city. Hugh acquired the images along with other ephemera over the course of his lifetime. The photographs are not by famous artists; but they are, rather, a unique collection, having been taken by unknown photographers for a variety of purposes, thereby representing the city in ways the more famous collections do not.

Our Prints

We create museum-quality fine-art Giclée prints on our Epson Stylus Pro 7900, using Epson Exhibition Fiber paper.  Wilhelm Imaging Research gives such prints a 150 year permanence rating when displayed under UV glass. We mat our 8x10 prints on a white, archival quality, acid-free mat. Our images can also be printed on a variety of other media, including Canvas, Posterboard, Vinyl, Plexi, and Aluminum. Custom cropping, matting and framing are available on request. If you are looking for a particular effect, please call us Toll Free 888-250-8956 to discuss.

From selection to installation, we have worked with a number of art consultants and interior designers, including Art Advice and Butter and Eggs in New York City to help decorate the walls of numerous corporate spaces and other institutions such as the NYU Law Library.
