“Making All Stops” – Subway Flavour From Back In The Days

The original “Meeting Of Styles” in a way was happening here in New York City around 1971 and 1972. This was mostly on the IRT numbered lines in The Bronx and Manhattan. That’s where the Graffiti movement on trains originated and “Making All Stops” shows those early days from many places in the city. Check out this inspiring document!

MAS is subway photography book series to show you the various work of hardcore New York train historians who traveled the system from the years of 1970 to 1989. One of them was a transit worker during the time and the Volume One book is a tribute to his work. Volume Two is not in print yet, hopefully to be done in 2015. Volume One book is mostly 1970 to 1976 and has some photos from the 1980’s in there to show certain historical comparisons. We detail the dates and locations of the photos.

The way it originated in NYC that long ago, is much different to how the artwork is now popular worldwide and events like MOS is proof of that. If you want to learn from some photo legends of NYC and appreciate some history and nostalgia for the trains and how it was to be here in New York, we have Book #1 ready for you. Book #2 we want to print later this year.
