New Haven Redevelopment Agency Photograph Collection
Approximately 10,000+ prints (8 x 10s), some original negatives, c. 1940s – 1970s. The NHRA hired dozens of photographers to document the transformation of the various project areas. There are many duplicates in this collection. The collection is strongest in showing the “before”, “during,” and “after” views of project areas, including: Oak Street, Church Street, Long Wharf, Wooster Square, Dixwell Ave., The Hill, State Street, Dwight Street, and Fair Haven. Not catalogued; organized by Project area.
