See Long Island at the turn of the 20th century: The Fullerton photographs

Hal B. Fullerton worked for the Long Island Rail Road from 1897 until 1927, promoting Long Island's recreational and agricultural possibilities as the railroad extended its lines eastward from New York City. About 70 of Fullerton's photos selected from the more than 2,500 glass-plate negatives donated to the Suffolk County Historical Society are on display at the society's museum in Riverhead until Dec. 23, 2016.
