Hello, I'm doing a research project and need to find good quality photographs of H&Hs in New York City during the 1950s. I'm specifically looking for exterior shots, but anything from the 1950s would be great. Can anyone help me in my search? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

The New York Public Library probably has the largest collection. It's the Robert F Byrnes Collection of Automat Memorabelia housed in the Manuscripts and Archives Division. There are about 22 boxes of photos divided by location, not date.

Our book is another source of photo resources.

Thank you! The Robert F Byrnes collection was amazing.
