Throughout the 1940s and '50s, Jerome Greenberg was a casual chronicler of Buffalo's street life. From the window of his delivery truck, which he drove for his family's beverage company, he'd snap pictures at stop signs and red lights. The result is a body of work that gives a unique sense of what Buffalo streets were like more than half a century ago, photographs not made as part of some grand documentary effort or artistic project, but out of simple curiosity.
A selection of Greenberg's photographs will go on view today in the Buffalo Niagara Visitor Center Gallery in downtown's Market Arcade Building (617 Main St.), where they will remain through Feb. 28. A reception for the show, titled "Our Buffalo," gets under way at noon Saturday.
Admission to the small exhibition is free. For more information, call the Buffalo Niagara Convention and Visitors Bureau at 852-2356 or visit www.visitbuffaloniagara.com.
