Real estate exec donates nearly 25,000 NY Times images to Ryerson

Real estate executive Chris Bratty has bought the New York Times’ Canadian photo collection and will donate the nearly-25,000 images to Ryerson University’s photography collection.
“It’s an incredible improvement of our collection and an incredible resource for studying Canadian history,” said Paul Roth, director of the Ryerson Image Centre told the Toronto Star.
The photos span nearly the entire 20th Century, from the years leading up to the First World War through the 1990s.
Opened in 2012, the Ryerson Image Centre has, to date, been based primarily around the Black Star collection, over 290,000 black and white photos from the archives of New York-based Black Star photo agency.
