Dr. Ralph Irving Lloyd was a Brooklyn ophthalmologist and an avid amateur photographer. The collection consists of roughly 400 black-and-white lantern slides, created by Lloyd, that depict 17th, 18th, and 19th century historic houses, homesteads, churches, storefronts, cemeteries and gravestones, and schools in Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan; and 19th and early 20th century street scenes of Brooklyn. He lived at 14 8th Avenue (near Flatbush Avenue) in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn. To view more photographs from this collection, check out the online image gallery.
