50's NYC Auditor Discovered to Be Master Street Photographer.

After 45 years sitting in a cardboard box, the fantastic images of Frank Oscar Larson are discovered by his son's widow. Larson was an auditor living in Queens who would venture off into the Hells' Kitchen, Chinatown and other NYC locals armed with  his trusty Rolleiflex and keen eye for the magical moments that most passersby would miss.

This story is reminiscent of the Chicago nanny Vivian Maier

He shot thousands of images in the early 50's documenting a City that once was. Enjoy.
