Harlem 1985

I just scanned this Kodachrome slide from ’85 and it is all about the old traffic light. Back when I took the picture these were already very rare. Besides this one in Harlem, there was one in central park and another one on Park Ave. Forgotten New York has more on these beautiful structures…

Harlem 1988

harlem-dog-matt-weberFinally scanned this one from the negative!

This dog was probably an early warning system for business which was being conducted within. It was the only building left on an entire block of East Harlem. It has always been a very popular image…
