Then and Now: Pictorial Quogue, c. 1875 & 2020

Thursday, July 23, 6 p.m.

With Julie B. Greene, QHS Curator and Southampton Town Historian

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 online on view at the Pond House (currently closed).
