Special Presentation 

The Bay Ridge Historical Society is proud to have in its archives The Samuel Winter Thomas collection of photographs taken in the late 1880's by Samuel Winter Thomas himself. Join us at our next meeting of the Bay Ridge Historical Society on Wednesday, September 21st at 7:30 p.m. for a presentation of this collection. The Thomas Collection illustrates Bay Ridge’s rural beauty, when farms and country-style mansions and clubs graced the area along the shore of the Lower New York Bay. Historian Peter Scarpa will provide background and commentary, as well as a slideshow featuring dozens of photographs from the Thomas Collection, as well as other intriguing images of our neighborhood’s past.

It looks to be an interesting evening.  We hope you can join us.
