New Digital Collection From the Library of Congress: Unseen Images of New York City (1949-1967) Now Available Online via The Anthony Angel Collection, Includes More Than 1,400 Rights-Free Pictures

From a Post on “Picture This” (a Library of Congress Blog):

Candid views of people and formal views of buildings abound in the Anthony Angel Collection, which offers a diverse and lively representation of one of the most well-known cities in America in approximately 60,000 photographs taken between 1949 and 1967. You can easily become acquainted with the collection through the images that the photographer himself chose to print—almost 1,400 rights-free pictures. This collection of largely unseen images of New York City from a relatively unknown photographer shows a city full of life and endless in its expanse. Researchers or fans of New York City will find images that resonate. Whether images of historic buildings and iconic skylines or of people living their daily lives, the Anthony Angel Collection will give you a chance to see it all through a new lens.
