Vanderbilt's residences Part II: Halic Collection PART II. HALIC Albert Levy's photographs



We see now the Vanderbilt's residences in the Halic collection ( biggest holder of  Albert Levy's photographs).

Historic Architecture and Landscape Image (HALIC):
Consisting of approximately 11,000 images that document the architecture, landscape and urban planning of sites across the United States - with a particular emphasis on Chicago and its suburbs - and, to a lesser extent, internationally, The Historic Architecture and Landscape Image collection, or HALIC, contains mounted photographic prints, lantern slides (both black and white and hand-colored), and postcards dating from the 1860s to the 1970s.

In the collection they are several photographs of Vanderbil's houses.
