A photographic tour featuring scenes from the John Harrington Riley collection.
This book is a pictorial review of the Third Avenue Railway, but in a more general sense it is a pictorial review of street scenes in Manhattan and The Bronx during the late 1940s. All of the images are from the postwar 1940s. And all images are from the inexpensive folding and box cameras of amateur photographers who happened to be rail fans.
Contents: In Manhattan, pp. 5-26, North-South in The Bronx, pp. 27-49, Cross-town in The Bronx, pp. 50-78, Last Glimpses, pp. 79-80.
