Vintage gelatin silver print, mounted, signed, titled, dated in pencil on mount, photographer's stamp on reverse. Albok, John, 1894-1982, born in Munkacs, Hungary Photographs of New York City street scenes and events, in 1937, Albok was discovered by noted curator Grace Mayer (1901-1996) after he won a weekly photo contest sponsored by the New York Herald Tribune. His photograph subjects included leisure time in Central Park, the 1939-1940 World's Fair, New York street scenes during World War II, and later Greenwich Village and the Russian Orthodox Church, specifically St. Nicholas Cathedral on East 97th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues. Albok had an aesthetic fascination with children, animals, and leisure activities; the majority of the New-York Historical Society's collection revolves around these subjects. –Text credit New York Historical Society
