what a difference a century makes
these pics are from the ny blizzard of 1899. i love t to see new york through the ages and can only imagine what it must have been like living there 100 years ago. so much has changed and still so much is exactly the same. what a rock!
at least i won’t be digging my carriage out this year! but i’m on my way today and hope the flights aren’t too backed up.
talk about being on ‘the grid’!
these great old shots are from the new york times archives and the ny historical society. nytimes.com
and these are from the museum of the city of new york: museumofnyc.doetech.net
i guess there were a lot of pre-war fireplaces crackling!
in my search i came across a film that was made about the blizzard at the time. it’s a silent and apparently a classic at that. you can find it here: imdb.com/title/tt0230326
well, that’s enough stalling, have to go and face the music!
i hate the cold but can’t wait to see the bergdorf windows. i have to keep repeating that to stay motivated to leave sunny florida! more from the other side~
