New York historic rubbishThese pictures give a fascinating insight into the history of New York City through its forgotten rubbish. The trash includes an old bagel, a love letter and old medicine boxes. They are among more than 6,000 items found in the city and restored by the Tenement Museum. Most of the rubbish was found in one building thought to have housed thousands of immigrants during the 1930s. Historians also found a wedding invitation, a doll’s head and a library notice.
