With that in mind, the photo of the week is an ektachrome slide depicting the Brooklyn Bridge in August, 1964. This photograph is from the A. Edna Glyde photograph collection that comprises color slides, negatives, contact sheets, and black-and-white prints by photographer and Brooklyn Heights resident, Edna Glyde. Many of her photographs depict cityscapes and weather conditions in Brooklyn from 1940-1967. Her photographs are not digitized, but we would love for you to visit the Othmer Library to see more of them in person, as well as other beloved and not-so-beloved film types that are still extinct today (Kodachrome, 620 format, nitrate, and more!).
