Edwin Levick (Born 1868) was a photographer who was born in England. He moved to America in 1899 to work in New York City as a translator of Arabic for the Guaranty Trust Company. After working for some years, he turned his attention to photography and was supplying his photographic services to the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, Rudder and Motorboat Magazine, as well as the New York Herald Tribune. He began to photograph for magazines and write for newspapers of the day; Levick eventually decided to specialize in maritime photography. He was very successful and within a few years, his business had expanded to a level where he had to employ 7 assistants, including Morris Rosenfeld, who later gained a reputation as a leading maritime photographer in his own right.

He was declared the "best known maritime photographer in the nation by The New Rochelle Standard. He had lived in New Rochelle for the past 15 years and was a member of the New Rochelle Yacht Club. A collection of his work consists of more than 200 negatives (some glass but most film). Among the 200 negatives most are views of Walter Chrysler's home and Times Square at night. Almost 80 negatives record the strike at Eagle Pencil Company in 1938. His other assignments include a women's tennis tournament, the Housewrecker's Union strike of the 1930s, radio opera broadcasts which was sponsored by General Motors, movie theater marquees, and Jimmy Durante as Santa Claus. All these images have a brief caption. He died at his home in New Rochelle at the age of 61.
