Land of Moses now open @limuseum. #robertmoses #longislandhistory #LIM #limuseum

The man, the myth, the legend, and the llama?! Just a normal day at the office for Robert Moses, it would seem, as he confidently feeds Sir Lancelot from his hand. Finding photographs like this that have lost their conceptual information is a beauty and a curse. We know this happened because it is documented, but why did it happen? Why is there a llama in Moses office? How long was his visit? Was he a friendly llama? Was he there for a significant event? Robert Moses, the man, is also a conundrum. 
Tomorrow our exhibition, The Land of Robert Moses: Robert Moses and Modern Long Island, opens in the History Museum.

Accessories make the man! “For Control of His Staff,” Honorable Robert Moses was presented with this miniature police baton (pictured top) by NYC’s Armed Forces Police department, c. 1960. The fedora (pictured bottom), c. 1950, was a staple part of Moses’s everyday wardrobe. These are just two of the hundred and fifty objects that will be featured along with film clips, photographs, and artwork that tell the life story of Moses and his impact on Long Island in our summer exhibition, The Land of Moses: Robert Moses and Modern Long Island, opening June 22.

Toes in the sand, wind in the hair, crashing surf, life’s a beach. Or so it was for Robert Moses, the man who gave Long Islanders Jones Beach, an early triumph. An avid swimmer who regularly plunged into the ocean for long solo workouts, Moses was also a frequent guest at the Jones Beach Theater. He is pictured with Guy Lombardo (at right) and three showgirls from a performance of the1960 musical Hit the Deck.

The man, the myth, the legend. Robert Moses shaped the lives of generations of Long Islanders. Jones Beach, the L.I.E, Throg’s Neck Bridge, and the Southern State Parkway are just some of the creations Moses envisioned and built that deeply impacted the way we travel on and off the island as well as dictate where many go for recreation. Moses was a brilliantly talented man who was not afraid to make controversial decisions and face public opposition.

The temperature is rising, the days are getting longer, and the nights shorter. Long Island, summer is upon us! 
Here is a photograph of the Hawkins family enjoying their summer days at Pine View, Stony Brook, c. 1905. This photograph was included in a grouping of negatives gifted to us from Mrs. Flora B. Hawkins in 1965. Are you planning on going to beach this weekend?!

Congratulations to Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan on their big day! Did you wake up early to watch the #royalwedding? Did you see the beautiful carriage they rode through town in?

The lucky couple chose the Ascot Landau carriage for their procession through Windsor Town after their ceremony. The carriage is one of five Ascot Landaus in the Royal Mews which are used in official and ceremonial state events, such as Coronations, Royal Weddings and State Visits. In our own collection of carriages this Brewster & Company landau (1895) was used in the procession welcoming Queen Elizabeth II to Bermuda in 1953, being the second carriage in the line. Interested in seeing more? Our carriage collection numbers nearly 200! #whatawaytotravel
