The Alice Austen House Museum will host a gallery of the changing working class in the city in the "Street Types: Turn of the Century Portraiture by Alice Austen" exhibit.
The exhibit will feature portraits of the working class of the 1890s in the streets of Manhattan by Austen, one of the earliest female street photographers, including some never displayed before.
The collections features photos that were published in Austen's 1896 portfolio, as well as shots from the same time period that were not chosen for her book. A copy of Austen's published portfolio, which was a gift from her aunt and uncle, will also be on display.
Admission to the museum is a $3 suggested donation.
