This little church was once called St. Luke Baptist Church but nicknamed Little Zion. It was built by and for the African American slaves in 1883. The land was once part of the Cleona Plantation. It became abandoned in the early part of 1970. The pastor retired and the people started attending other local churches. I went back there not long ago to take more photos. I was very sad to see that this old church had completely collapsed! I’m just grateful that I was able to photograph it a few times while it was still standing.
Taken in Chackbay, Louisiana.
So, you may have heard that New York City has been hit with some snow. In honor of this event, here are 10 photos from our vast collections showing a blanketed Big Apple. The photos are mostly from 1860 to 1905, although we did sneak in a photo of the 1939 World’s Fair grounds in Queens covered in the white stuff. There are kids throwing snowballs on the Lower East Side, people sleighing through Harlem and Central Park, people shoveling out Madison Square, etc. Check them out - it’s all fascinating. And this is just a small group - see more snow pics in our Digital Gallery.
