With that in mind, the photo of the week is a peek into some of the Othmer Library’s collection storage from around 1980. How we store items on site has changed quite a bit since this photograph was taken, but our dedication to collecting and preserving Brooklyn History remains the same. This photograph comes from the Long Island Historical Society photographs collection comprised of photographs from 1925 to 1980 that document the Society’s historic building and activities of the Long Island Historical Society (now Brooklyn Historical Society). To see more photographs from this collection, check out this gallery.
