About This Item

[NYC] PACH BROS. ARCHIVE: 264 unmounted photographs including numerous pictures of the photographers as young men. A museum quality archive of 260+ original unmounted albumen photographs, c. late 19th Century, including numerous candid pictures of the brothers and family, some showing cameras. Images appear to mostly be of the greater NYC area, including excursions to Central Park; a military parade with Theodore Roosevelt in the stands saluting the troops; uniformed women marching; a NYC blizzard; beach scene; and many others.

The numerous family photographs and street photography suggests these were part of a personal collection kept by the photographers, which might explain how they escaped being lost in the 1895 fire which destroyed their commercial business, including their negatives. "A dramatic fire on February 16, 1895 completely burned out the Pach studios that were located on the top floor of the buildings at 935 and 937 Broadway. An account in the New York Timess (February 17, 1895, p. 17) stated that there were thirty employees at work in the studio, and twenty patrons sitting for their portraits, when the fire started in the negative retouching room. No lives were lost, though all negatives created in the New York and the college satellite studios from the time of the firm's founding were destroyed. The brothers immediately reconstructed their premises and continued photographing from that same location for more than fifteen years." NYU Pach Bros. Collection.
