Photos of New York City’s Famed Lower East Side in the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s Make Perfect Gift for Photography Collectors, History Buffs and New York City Enthusiasts
NEW YORK – Give a piece of New York City history to friends and family with newly-released photographic prints of Manhattan’s historic Lower East Side from famed optician and New York City Institution, MOSCOT. A fixture in New York City for nearly 100 years, MOSCOT is making these historic family photos available to the public for the first time.
The photographs, taken by great grandfather. Sol Moscot, provide a rare glimpse back in time to the eclectic Manhattan neighborhood and MOSCOT’s namesake, Hyman MOSCOT, in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. The photographs depict what life was like for immigrants, who having come to America via Ellis Island, settled into their brand new lives on the busy streets of the Lower East Side, and are a vivid reminder of what makes New York City the unique and interesting place it is.
All photographs are four-color C-prints matted on archival boards and are available in two sizes: 11 X 14 at $125.00 and 16 X 20 at $250.00. To purchase the photographs, and for more information on MOSCOT retail locations, visit www.moscot.com.
MOSCOT’s vintage photos are also available in postcard form – nine postcards per package depict street scenes from Manhattan’s historic Lower East Side, and the MOSCOT family, during the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. Postcards are prints of original photographs taken by great grandfather, Sol Moscot. Each postcard book retails for $9.95.
