"By the El--Third Avenue & Its El at Midcentury", is a collection of over 160 color photos & many human interest stories from its former citizens that capture the 3rd Avenue El & the neighborhoods it traversed. Far & away the most beautiful collection of photographs ever published dealing with a transit related subject. When Joe Franklin, radio's "King of Nostalgia," first saw the collection he was prompted to say, "Seldom have I seen a collection of images that is so comprehensive & realistic." "By the El" is a photo & reminiscence tour of Third Avenue, from the Bowery to Harlem with special emphasis given to the El which disappeared by May 1955. These photos have a time machine character to them. The viewer gets the sensation he is walking down the avenue in the early 1950's, browsing in the store windows & interacting with its citizens. Car buffs are treated to a huge collection of antique autos, buses & trucks in original condition. Transit buffs will have the sensation they are riding the El over again or for the first time.
