POTW FallPhoto of the Week:

The photo of the week is aptly titled “Fall”, and depicts the tree-lined sidewalk along the stone wall bordering Prospect Park West on a rainy day in autumn, around 1905. In the distance is a small group of people walking on the sidewalk. Last year, I featured a similar photograph titled “Summer” by the same photographer. Which one is your favorite? Learn about the photographer of this blustery gem on the
BHS Blog...
