INTRODUCTION/NEW YORK CITY (from contents of the book)
When I arrived in New York City in the early Forties, one of my early jobs was teaching photography at an evening school. I had a few years of experience in Rochester at the Kodak color department and was quite familiar with color lab work which, at the time, was still in its infancy. At that time the New York Central's photography department consisted of Dave Hyde, one of the nicest fellows in the world to work with, but limited in his knowledge of the craft. His mentor was a NYC night watchman who doubled as a parttime railroad photographer. One time, he told me, they went down to the southern end of the New York Central in West Virginia to shoot pictures of a coal mine. They had one of the big Speed Graphics with the large hood and 12-shot film magazine. Not knowing what exposure to make on their subject, they took the same picture twelve times at different exposures in order to ensure one good photo. Color was completely out of the question. By persistence and ability I was able to persuade the Central to hire me, a position which I took on with alacrity in 1941. I would take my car and go out for a week looking for spots. Or I would ride the head end of trains looking for photogenic angles. Since the railroad was not that rich, I didn't want to overdo it with photos of just one locale and made a concerted effort not to show the same scenery time after time. I was always looking for something new.
New York City itself, the headquarters of the New York Central, had more than a few Central subjects which attracted my camera.

New York City, the Hudson River Valley, the B&A, Buffalo, Chicago and the 20th CENTURY LTD during the 40s, 50s and 60s.   The brand new CENTURY is toured in color, stem-to-stern in 1948.
