Bob Wyer is one of the most prolific photographers in the history of the Catskills. His photographic career included shooting just about everything, such as passport photos, chauffer licenses, hunting licenses, high school yearbooks, formal portraits, special occasions such as birthdays and weddings, young babies, local stores, hotels and businesses, accidents, insurance claims, crime scenes, landscapes, parades and local news events. There was nothing that Bob couldn’t and wouldn’t photograph. Upon his retirement, Bob donated his extensive collection of over 150,000 photos to the Delaware County Historical Association. The collection is a virtual time capsule of the region from the late 1930s to the 1970s.
For a more detailed biography about this notable Catskills photographer please see my blog post titled “Bob Wyer: The Delhi Lensman” from February 22, 2020.
I have recently acquired a number of new photographs by Bob Wyer, all from the Catskills region. They have all been added to the Bob Wyer gallery, which now contains over 100 of his Catskills works.
