Cool off with Aqueduct prints at CFL from Cotton Collection

July 26, 2017

Croton Aqueduct at the CFL this Summer

Cool off this summer with prints from the collection of Cornelia Cotton showing the history of the Croton Aqueduct.   These prints are at the Croton Free Library, 171 Cleveland Drive, Croton-on-Hudson, NY.  Hours and Directions.

Cornelia, among the founding members of CCoA and very active in it, is multi talented — a collector, photographer, historian, writer, and a wonderful speaker.  Here the collected prints speak for her fascination in the extraordinary and elegant engineering feat that is the Aqueduct that has been so important to the development of New York City.  (The print here is the first Croton Dam, from which water was fed into the Aqueduct.  It was replaced in 1906 by the New Croton Dam, a major and impressive stone structure.)

A vitrine in the library contains some photographs of and in the Aqueduct by mary Jean Picciano (see link for portfolio) and Bonnie Coe (see link for bird photography).
