Visiting H.A. Dunne And Company For Vintage New York City Memorabilia And Vintage Magazine Advertising And Paper Collectibles

Vintage Advertising And Historic New York City Photographs At H.A. Dunne And Company, New Milford, Connecticut
While antiquing and shopping in Litchfield and New Preston, Connecticut, I discovered a great source for historic New York City photographs and memorabilia at H.A. Dunne And Company in nearby New Milford , Connecticut.

Located on Litchfield Road, on a scenic route is H.A. Dunne & Company an attractive store which specializes in ephemera, photos, antique maps, and memorabilia related to New York City.

Extensive Collection Of Vintage New York City Images

According to their website, " With just over 5,000 images, mostly photographed between 1880-1950, the H.A. Dunne Archive is one of the most extensive and unique vintage NYC photo collections in the world. The majority of the images were the personal collection of Hugh A. Dunne, a life-long New Yorker who had an enduring love for his city".

Vintage Magazine Advertising Art And Covers

H.A. Dunne also carries a very large general inventory of magazine advertising art and magazine covers well categorized for easy browsing.

H.A. Dunne And Company Is A Well Organized Store For The Advertising Paper Collector

What is particularly different about this store is that they have taken the time to carefully mount their paper collectibles or frame them to be suitable as wall decor. Unlike many other shops that I have visited over the years that deal in paper collectibles and are stuffed with old magazines and piles of paper collectibles everywhere, H.A. Dunne is an upscale beautifully decorated shop with a well organized gallery of images,prints, original artwork hand made gifts, books, snow globes, historic building collectibles and more.
