New York Street Photography in the Fifties by Frank Oscar Larson

Most people that live downtown have the sense of the city they live in. They have seen old advertisements, documentaries even have heard stories of older people. Larson’s family had a more distinct citation of New York’s downtown. Frank Oscar Larson, an amateur photographer of the fifties, was grand-father of Soren Larson, the person who found a remarkable discovery.

After Larson senior died these photographs were placed in the attic for nearly 50 years. After the discovery of them, they are part of the Queens Museum of Art exhibits. Great for those living in the city currently to understand the heritage left and the obligation to propagate it to younger generations. Enjoy.
