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) in 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 "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.

My Comment

Just wondering why my comment didn't make the cut. I commented where this photo was taken (at intersection of Depot Street, Depitts Lane, and Fleischmanns Heights Road, facing easterward) and apparently it wasn't interesting enough to include but this comment made it?

"Well, Fleischmanns is certainly cute, but I'll take a through ticket to Willoughby!"

News Item

July 12, 1903:

"Mr. Carl Herrmann of New York, while giving a morning salute with a small cannon at his Summer cottage, blew the end off one of his fingers."

Another item of "fresh excitement" was the suicide of "young Jacob Haas, because of a disappointment in love."

I see a missed opportunity for collaboration.

You too can visit Fleischmanns by rail

Well sort of: the Delaware and Ulster RR excursions pass over this same track. The station itself doesn't survive but the freight depot which is just out of the picture to the left is still there.


Well, Fleischmanns is certainly cute, but I'll take a through ticket to Willoughby!

Most likely location

Packing has changed

I see that packing light and carrying on your luggage was not quite the vogue of the day in the early 1900s.

[Families who spent whole summers at Fleischmanns to escape the heat of New York City needed to pack accordingly. -tterrace]
