Each week, we share an interesting or curious image from the BHS Archives on the BHS Blog.
Photo of the Week:
The photo of the week depicts Brooklyn Historical Society's Othmer Library around 1938. Have you had the opportunity to visit this space yet? If not, you’re in for a treat when you do. The New York City interior landmark was built in 1881, and features a unique truss system, beautiful stained glass, ornately-detailed shelving, and columns made of black ash wood. It is also one of the most comprehensive collections of materials on Brooklyn history and culture in the world. Learn more about the Othmer Library on the BHS Blog...
