Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungPhotographer Dan McNulty was a Jersey City resident who spent most of his time working in his familyas funeral home. McNultyas photography was a mere sideline, but this fact did not affect the high artistic quality of the images of the city that he produced during the 1940s and a50s. During the two decades of McNultyas work, Jersey City experienced many changes. The powerful political machine of Mayor Frank Hague was brought down after thirty years
in 1949 by the reform team of John V. Kenny, and this period also saw the end of the cityas success in the railroad industry. In the 1950s, the first large housing projects were constructed in the city; other sweeping developments in this sphere would follow in the 1960s. McNulty documented these changes and others that resulted during this twenty year period through dramatic photographs of vacant railroad terminals, dynamic commercial and residential districts, successful factories and manufacturing plants, and significant WPA projects such as the Jersey City Medical Center and Roosevelt Stadium.
