NYC Municipal Archives Collections

WPA Federal Writers' Project, NYC Unit Photograph Collection, 1935-1943. 5,000 images; 1,279 in gallery. In 1943, when the WPA ceased operation, the Municipal Archives acquired the manuscript records of the NYC Unit of the Federal Writers' Project, including the photographs assembled to illustrate their publications; most notably the Guide to New York City and New York Panorama. The Writers' Project staff acquired the photographs from their colleagues on the Art Project, commercial sources, and their own staff photographers. The photographs are arranged by subject?aerial and panoramic views; bridges; buildings; industry and trade; parks; people; street scenes; transportation; waterfront; WPA activities. Caption information is generally the description originally recorded by Project staff. 5,000 gelatin-silver prints in various sizes; 1,200 negatives in various sizes
