Old Local Photographs

On occasion, Upstream will feature an old photo taken somewhere in the Mohawk Valley. Today's photograph is of shoppers in downtown Amsterdam. My guess is that it was taken in the 1940s. Shoppers in downtown Amsterdam are, of course, almost non-existent now. The photograph was taken by famous photographer John Collier. Richard Doud conducted an interview with Collier in 1965. The interview was transcribed, and you can read it on-line. I found this photograph in the extensive collection of on-line photos in the Library of Congress.
