Description:
BEALS, ALFRED TENNYSON (active 1900-1920s)

Group of 22 historic and rare photographs of immigrant life in New York City, with bustling scenes of street activity on the Lower East Side, including a block with Italian merchants, plus young men studying to become American citizens, students in classrooms and others playing musical instruments, well-dressed men holding their diplomas before an American flag, children dressed as nurses and acting in Christmas pageants, and more; with triplicates of 2 images. Silver prints,7 1/2x9 1/4 inches (19.1x23.5 cm.), with Beals' hand stamp and numeric notations on verso. 1910s-1920s

With the exception of Lewis Hine, who trained his lens on children and tenement workers, and earlier photographs (from the 1890s) by Jacob Riis and Augustus Sherman, photographs recording NYC's vast immigrant population from the 1910s-20s (when quotas were reinstituted) are quite uncommon. Beals was the former husband of the noted photographer, Jessie Tarbox Beals, who was well-known for her artistic photographs of Greenwich Village.
