1926 photo montage of West 207th Street in the Inwood section of Manhattan. The accompanying music is Dave Brubeck’s It’s a Raggy Waltz.
The photos themselves are part of a massive collection spanning 1900-1947. The photos, taken by city agencies, mainly for insurance purposes, documented the impact of subway construction on neighborhoods throughout the city. The photos in this montage were taken during the construction of the Broadway “A Line.”
