A special feature of the exhibition this year as a memorial group the work of Joseph Petrocelli, a man well known among Brooklyn photographers for years who made this branch of illustration his hobby and had not only a Brooklyn but a world-wide reputation, as examples of his work have hung in 54 international shows. This group is particularly timely as Mr. Petrocelli unfortunately died at the end of the year.
The exhibition will continue until March 31st.
