Annotation

The largest island in the continental United States, Long Island comprises Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk counties. With a rich history that has included American Indian tribes such as the Massapequa, Shinnecock, and Quogue, among others; colonists from England and the Netherlands; and immigrants who arrived by way of Ellis Island; Long Island thrives today on its wealth of industry, agriculture, natural beauty, and the contributions of its nearly eight million residents. Those very attributes are showcased in this volume,Historic Photos of Long Island.From the lighthouse at Montauk, to the growth of the Long Island Rail Road, to the factories of Long Island City, the breadth, contrasts, and vitality of the Island through a century of its life shine forth in the black-and-white images collected here. Windmills and tide mills, potatoes and oysters, aviators and fishermenall are a part of the Islands history, and all are represented vividly among the nearly 200 images seen inHistoric Photos of Long Island.
