Residents of New York in 1896 in the photographs of Alice Austen

Alice Austen was one of the first female photographers and documented in his photographs of New York life on the verge of 19-20 centuries. In this post I want to show you a selection of works of this woman, and learn about the history of her life. I wish you pleasant viewing! Here, for example, a New York cop sample 1896. As you can see, this type police officer appeared long before the Russian cops.

In 1950, the project associated with the history of women in America, sought a rare unpublished photos and came across the work of Alice. From 8000 pictures exist about 3 500. A small portion of the found photos were published in several popular American magazines, including Life. There's also an article about the most telling Alice. As a result, it managed to collect enough money to transfer her from a shelter in a private nursing home, where she died a year later at age 86.
Now her house is a museum of Alice Austen House. Due to the Historical Society of Staten Island all of her photos are digitized, cataloged and available for study. The Alice Austen House hosts a permanent exhibition where you can see about 300 of her photographs.
