Faces of Old Long Island

All three of these are from the Life Archives. Above is Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney standing amongst his cattle, most likely on his estate in Old Westbury.

F. Ambrose Clark in one of his buggies on his estate 'Broad Hollow House' in Old Westbury.

Nikita Khrushchev standing on the grounds of George Dupont Pratt's 'Killenworth' in Glen Cove in 1963. 'Killenworth' became the UN retreat to the U.S.S.R. and is still owned by Russia today.
