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. With this in mind, 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.
When Larson senior died these photographs were placed in the attic for nearly 50 years. It was After the discovery of them, that they became 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.
