Item #014252 Picturesque White Plains. JOHN ROSCH.

Picturesque White Plains

White Plains: John Rosch, (1902), 1906. First Edition. Soft Cover. Good. Item #014252

Turn-of-the-century photographic survey of the houses, parks, schools and churches of this suburb of New York City. Rosch was a professional photographer in White Plains and he has thoroughly surveyed the houses, churches, schools, parks, and wild areas of the rapidly growing town as it existed at the turn of the century. The text, with optimistic boosterish prose, is anonymous, but might be Rosch's--he was White Plains's unofficial amatuer historian a few decades later. Scarce. First edition. Folio; 48 pp.; illustrated from photographs. Wear to covers; else a good copy or better in original pictorial wrappers.

Price: $175.00
