 PHOTOGRAPHY - 20TH CENTURY, Original Press Photograph - Assassination Attempt on Mayor Gaynor
PHOTOGRAPHY - 20TH CENTURY
Original Press Photograph - Assassination Attempt on Mayor Gaynor
1910. [PHOTOGRAPHY - 20TH CENTURY] ORIGINAL PRESS PHOTOGRAPH - ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT ON NEW YORK CITY MAYOR WILLIAM JAY GAYNOR, 1910. American Press Association, event occurring August 6, 1910 (reverse of photo dated August 10). Silver gelatin print photograph, 6 9/16 x 8 1/2 inches. Small chip and slight creasing to bottom lower corner, faint impression to top from marking on reverse. The three men in the photo are framed from the torso up. The photograph shows the wounded Mayor Gaynor, who survived the attempt but died three years later from lingering effects, supported by two unidentified "friends." The reverse bears typed notes to the effect that the photo was taken by the American Press Association's photographer, unnamed, and that the photo was taken moments after Commissioner Edwards knocked the would-be assassin (a disgruntled former city employee) to the ground. Gaynor was aboard ship in New York Harbor, about to depart for a European vacation when the attempt occurred. He was shot at point blank range in the throat. The outlines of the Mayor's hat and coat, as well as the two men's faces, have been enhanced by hand, presumably for press reproduction. .

19TH CENTURY
Tudor Wharves Ice: The Ships Anahuac, Lucy S. Wills and Anna Decatur

Charlestown Bridge is in the foreground, with one lone spectator observing the shipyard docks. Frederick Tudor, known as "The Ice King," combined two trades without much apparent connection (ice and sawdust) and by using the sawdust for insulation was able to create a shipping industry in New England that reached the far East and South America. Some vertical bands of toning faintly apparent (from original wood backing). 338-9, Bunting, "Portrait of a Port: Boston, 1852-1914." [a]. .
