About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including, but not limited to, "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

498 Seventh Avenue

Me too. I worked there during the fifties after school and during the summer. Kirt Shadoff was my uncle and Henry's brother-in-law. Tell me more.

My Uncle also...

I worked for him and also lived with him at 80 Park Avenue and 50 Sutton Place and married one of his models.

Uncle Henry

My uncle Henry Rosenfeld had a dress manufacturing company at 498 Seventh Avenue, between 36th and 37th streets (just a block away from this photo). I worked summers there in the mid 1950s while in high school.

Nothing to Fear

Frank E. Roosevelt says things are gonna get better.

-- Addie Pray, "Paper Moon"

The guy in the middle

reminds me of Al Pacino. He's all attitude.
