This week’s Throwback Thursday photos are by Matt Weber, a very talented photographer whose work we have featured before. The first one is from 1993, a picture of the Bow Bridge in Central Park.
He found this while “looking for pictures which might also make nice X-Mas gifts. This one taken during a heavy snowfall almost twenty years ago, might make a nice stocking stuffer…”
He also found this old negative of a brawl on Central Park West in 1988, back when he was a cab driver.
Here’s how he describes it: “I like looking at old work. I find stuff which I have no memory of at all. This was obviously taken on Central Park West. Snow was always a great treat for me when I was driving a cab. The people were grateful to get a ride, and the city was a winter wonderland. Late at night was great as there were very few other motorists on the streets. That’s why these guys could rumble in the middle of the avenue without fear of being run over….”

To participate in Throwback Thursday, please send us a photo, preferably by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject line of the email should be “Throwback Thursday.” In the email include the photo and a brief description of who is in it and where it’s taken and when.
The best way to send an older photo, if you don’t have your images scanned, is to scan them into your computer or take a photo of the photo with a phone or digital camera. We’re not looking for perfect clarity, just a good sense of the image and some information. If this isn’t an option email us and we’ll figure out how to get a digital version of the image. (And yes, we’ll even accept photos from after 2000.)
