 #throwbackthursday to August 7, 2018 when the LIM graciously accepted this long term loan from @brookhaventown. The two portraits of William Sidney Smith (1796-1879) and his wife, Eleanor Jones Smith (1805-1884) from artist Shepard Alonzo Mount were painted in the early 1830s. The museum is honored to take these two portraits into their collection as they will be LIM’s earliest represented career works of Mount. 📸 from left, Ed Romaine, Town Supervisor; Joshua Ruff, Chief Curator at LIM; Barbara Russell, Town Historian, Longwood Estate

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.
