Samuel H. Gottscho 

Samuel H. Gottscho 

As a young man, Samuel Gottscho (1875-1971) recorded the nighttime glories of Coney Island's early 20th-century amusement parks, but he became a professional success with the establishment of his own architectural photography firm in 1925. He received numerous important commissions from New York architects, developers, and contractors, including photographing private homes and major projects such as Raymond Hood's Rockefeller Center. Straddling the line between artistic and commercial photography, the collection includes not only pictures made for his commercial clients, but also non-commissioned work depicting iconic portraits of New York's changing skyline, bridges, and skyscrapers in the years between the world wars.
