Tomás Molina, Antonio Palomares, and Rafael Garzón, Souvenir d’Espagne. Cordova. Sevilla.
Album of 61 albumen photographs, 1890–­1900. GRF 178763.01–61.

 

     The Hispanic Society highlights its new acquisitions.

 

     With this album, the Hispanic Society strengthens its holdings from Andalusia ca.1900. Documenting Córdoba and Seville, the volume attests to the talent of three local photographers who skillfully documented the artistic heritage of Southern Spain. Although Antonio Palomares (d. by 1903) remains the most mysterious of them, his widow and successors continued his studio in Córdoba after his death.

     Based in that city as well, Tomás Molina (1864–1931) created numerous images of its monuments, including an extensive reportage of the Cathedral and mosque. The third figure, Rafael Garzón (1863–1923) may have been the most ambitious. After training in Madrid, he returned to Granada where he opened his own studio. He began by recording the Alhambra and local architecture but later moved on to take pictures more widely and eventually opened branches in Seville and Córdoba.
      The newly acquired album attests to the market that these photographers catered to. Elegantly bound and titled, Souvenir d'Espagne. Cordova. Sevilla, it doubtless comes from the trip that a French visitor made at the end of the 19th century. By this point, travel to Spain had become much easier and people from northern Europe flocked to their southern neighbor. Attracted by the promise of an exotic land and its Muslim past, they found Andalusia particularly appealing.

     Photographers like Molina, Palomares, and Garzón offered them striking photographs of crisp realism which could be assembled as a souvenir. For the owner of this album, the shots of the mosque of Córdoba and the Royal Alcázar in Seville extensively document these Islamic monuments. Curiously, however, it does not include the Alhambra in Granada, perhaps because it had not been on the itinerary or perhaps those pictures featured in another volume now lost.

 

     Con este álbum la Hispanic Society consolida su acervo de Andalucía en torno al 1900. Documentando Córdoba y Sevilla, el volumen avala el talento de tres fotógrafos locales
que hábilmente documentaron el patrimonio artístico del sur de España. Aunque Antonio Palomares (d. 1903) continua siendo el más misterioso de ellos, tras su muerte su viuda y sucesores continuaron con el estudio en Córdoba.

     Establecidos también en esa ciudad, Tomás Molina (1864–1931) realizó numerosas imágenes de sus monumentos, incluyendo un amplio reportaje de la catedral y la mezquita. La tercera figura Rafael Garzón (1863–1923) podría haber sido el más ambicioso. Tras su formación en Madrid volvió a Granada donde abrió su propio estudio. Comenzó por documentar la Alhambra y la arquitectura local pero más tarde siguió adelante haciendo fotografías con mayor amplitud y con el tiempo abrió sucursales en Sevilla y Córdoba.
     El recién adquirido álbum muestra el mercado que estos fotógrafos satisfizo. Encuadernado y titulado con elegancia, Souvenir d'Espagne. Cordova. Sevilla, llega sin duda de un viaje que un visitante francés hizo a finales del siglo diecinueve. Para ese momento viajar a España se había hecho mucho más fácil y ciudadanos del norte de Europa llegaron en bandada hacia su vecino del sur. Atraídos por la promesa de una tierra exótica y su pasado musulmán, hallaron Andalucía particularmente atractiva. Fotógrafos como Molina, Palomares y Garzón les ofrecieron llamativas fotografías de nítido realismo el que podía ser agrupado/ reunido a modo de souvenir.

      Para el dueño de este álbum las tomas de la mezquita de Córdoba y el Real Alcázar en Sevilla documentan extensamente estos monumentos islámicos. Sin embargo, curiosamente no incluye la Alhambra de Granada, quizás porque no formaba parte del itinerario o tal vez esas fotografías se incluyeron en otro volumen ahora perdido.

Not so quiet, please!

      Among the things WaHi is famous for is the noise. Lots of it!

      But does it seem eerily quiet now? You may not miss the auditory assaults, but the sounds of people mingling and waiters serving are becoming memories.

      Refresh yours with the New York Public Library’s new online album: Missing Sounds of New York. It probably won’t win any Grammys, but each track uses a combination of sounds to create familiar canvases on which mini stories are placed: a glass breaking in a bar, a dance performance on the subway, an overly enthusiastic baseball fan.

      It’s free and it’s available from the library. (No need to for a library card!)

Protecting your health in the parks

     If you’re staying in, you can still enjoy the city’s green spaces from home. Here’s a selection of video tours, meditation, fitness classes, and activities for kids.

     Getting out in one can help you relax and excercise at the same time. Just be sure to follow these common-sense guidelines:

  • Go out in small groups no bigger than three, making sure that everyone remains at least 6 feet from each other at all times. 
  • If you go out after dark, stay near the street and go with a friend — maintaining that distance of at least 6 feet. 
  • Bike or stroll on the Greenway along the Hudson or Harlem Rivers. 
  • Do not engage in team sports or other group games. 
  • Use playgrounds at your own risk. Although playground bathrooms remain open and are disinfected daily, the playground equipment is not disinfected. Avoid using playground equipment, but you do, take wipes to sanitize anything you or your child may touch and play on equipment only if you can remain at least 6 feet apart from anyone not in your household.

     Flash back to the summer of 1793. With Philadelphia under attack from an invisible enemy called Yellow Fever, a group of leading doctors in New York City got together and convinced the government to block all ships from the nation's then-capital.

     Realizing that quarantining would not be enough, and to control this deadly disease, the city and state began enacting sanitary protocols on a scale never before attempted — this is the story of how protecting the health of New Yorkers got its start over 200 years ago.

     Join New York Adventure Club for a deep dive into the genesis of New York's public health system, and how the city's fight against disease would transition from purely reactive, to proactive initiatives that would serve as a model for other cities throughout the world.

     Each year, hundreds of thousands of letters to Santa arrive at Post Offices around the country. Through Operation Santa, the United States Postal Service helps the public safely adopt the letters and make children’s dreams come true.

     How does it work? The documentary Dear Santa invites audiences along for the magic of this century-old endeavor. Traveling the country, much as Santa does on Christmas Eve, the film focuses on Operation Santa centers: some in metropolitan areas, like the massive operation here in town, and others in spots where the Post Office is the heart of the community.

     The film highlights letters from children whose requests are poignant, going beyond a wish for a toy, and how. Santa explains how he enlists kind-hearted strangers to fulfill special requests while he concentrates on toy making.

     The trailer is out now.

      If you like outdoor geometry, get on the street for sunrise and sunset when the shadows line up with the streets.

      The “Manhattanhenge” effect works Uptown on days different from the rest of the island’s.

      To see the sun line up with the streets in Hudson Heights (on 181st Street in the photo), where the street grid is aligned differently from most of the borough, get out on April 18; it’s also on August 26 in Hudson Heights Henge. Fort George Henge is on the same dates as Manhattan, and Inwood Henge is on January 23 — the grid there is so katy-wompus that the sun aligns when it is due “south.”

     The effect works below 174th and above 174th if you go east of Broadway (for sunrise: sunset views may be blocked by buildings to the west). So if you want to see Manhattanhenge, as it’s dubbed, hope for clear skies on May 30 and June 12.

     Inwood Henge: Saturday, January 23, at dawn and dusk.

     You can look for the dates in all the city’s neighborhoods on this map from Carto.
