Timeless New York street scenes, discovered after nearly 50 years
Amateur photographer Frank Larson captured New York City in the 50s. His thousands of negatives had been stashed away in an attic since his death in 1964. But recently, a grandson discovered them.
The thousands of negatives discovered, according to the Queens Museum of Art, were organized into more than 100 envelopes onto which Larson had carefully noted the locations, dates and times they were taken.
The bustling tourist area was a favorite photo setting of Larson's, according to the Queens Museum: Since Times Square is illuminated around the clock, he could disappear into the crowd at night and needed no flash to get his shots.
