Featuring: Eugene de Salignac, Larry Racioppo, and other photographers employed by the City of New York between 1903-1956
The Department of Records and Information Services, offers a selection of historical photographs from its Municipal Archives, featuring images of immigrants in the city. These images show everyday scenes in various communities, provoking the viewer to–potentially–reconsider the identity of immigrants during a volatile period in our country’s history.
We have selected the photographs from the New York City Municipal Archives’ massive collection of historical images—the largest repository of NYC digitized images in the world. The pictures show parents with children, shopkeepers, young people, and more.
The photographs are part of an exhibit that combines the Brooklyn College Immigrant Voices oral history display with content from the Municipal Archives and Library.
