1920's Queensboro Bridge, New York

from 75.00

My 14 by 18 inch drawing of the Queensboro Bridge is the subject of this print. Train tracks were added around 20 years after the completion of the bridge, and lasted a few decades. From a 1920's photo by the sole photographer for New York's Department of Bridges for 40 years, Eugene de Salignac, an under-celebrated American photographer, who came from a family of eccentric, exiled French royalty.

This drawing is based on a photograph by Eugene de Salignac, an American who was the sole photographer for the Department of Bridges in NYC from 1906 to 1934. Train tracks were being built on what became the Queensboro Bridge's upper level 20 years after the bridge was first completed.
