The world-famous IRT is the featured subject in this second entry celebrating the best of photographer Matthew J. Herson. From 1960-90, Herson sought out ideal photographic locations in New York City via his work with electrical contractors for the New York City Transit Authority—allowing him access to several non-public locales for rare and fascinating subway photography. The Interborough Rapid Transit Company opened in 1904 and was taken over by the NYCTA in 1940. Matt Herson’s intriguing color photography from the 1960s and ’70s is a vivid account of this historic line, mostly in vintage outdoor scenes.
