By the time of his death, in 1887, civil engineer and amateur photographer George Bradford Brainerd had taken 2,500 photographs, mostly urban views of New York City. The ten-plus images Brainerd captured of Quogue in the mid-1870s document a portrait of the Village’s early days, revealing a stark contrast to the Quogue of today. The exhibition Through the Lens of George Bradford Brainerd: Quogue, ca. 1875, is on view at the Pond House (currently closed).
