Hey Karen, The photographer is my best friend's grandfather and I knew him well and always liked his photographs. He was a dentist by trade. There are more photos that I have to clean up, and put up. All his photos passed down to her and I have her permission to put them up. Thanks for the feedback!

Hi, Melissa, Thanks for identifying the photographer. This is a beautiful image. Do you know if he has other photographs? Was this just a hobby? I know there was a professional photographer by the name of Fred Stein in NYC around the same time.

Thanks for your comments!

Congratulations on your sale!

Amazing that it worked out that way. Congrats on your sale.

This sold to a person from Malmoe, Sweden. That is where my family made the trip to America from. Thanks much!

Excellent! L/F

Simply beautiful!! Love it.F/V

Thanks so much Clara. He had a great eye.

Melissa, this is a great photo, but I don't understand how you can be selling it. This is the work of some other photographer, unidentified, uncredited, and not you. Correct?

Melissa A Benson replied:

Hi Lyn. No, not correct. I do identify him as the photographer in the description, credit him properly and state that the image is used with permission. This photo and others I have were taken by my best friend's grandfather Dr Irving Stein from New York, NY. They were passed down to her and are her property. I have permission from her t sell them. I also knew this wonderful man quite well.

Thank you Helen! It is one of my favorites.

What an absolutely beautiful photo! Such a nostalgic quality to it and Christmas like as well.
