‘Lost Inwood’ at Indian Road Café: Local Street Photographers

This month at LOST INWOOD we’ll be going hyper-local as we dive deep into the photo vault.  The historic photographs you’ll see at this month’s presentation all have one thing in common: The photographers were local residents.  Presented by co-founder Cole Thompson, we’ll start with the stunning collection of Robert and Charles Veitch. Spanning from the 1890s through the 1930s, this father and son team ran a general store on Dyckman Street and sold penny postcards of their Inwood views.

From there we’ll delve into the photo album of William and Minnie Hurst, whose bricked up, century-old mansion still stands on West 215th Street and Park Terrace East.

Then, we’ll explore the never before seen collection of Ezra and Jane Wheeler. This railroad postal clerk and his family lived inside 600 West 204th during the early 1900’s. The Wheeler collection of neighborhood photos is truly special, something to behold.

 

Other photographers are included too:  William Davis Hassler of 150 Vermilyea Street and Herb Maruska of 157-159 Vermilyea.

 

Don’t let history pass you by. Hope to see you there!
