Lower Broadway in 1899
Looking north up Broadway from around Fulton Street in New York City in 1899. Everything in this photo has since been demolished. Seen are the Western Union Building (demolished 1911), the Mail and Express Building (demolished 1922), the City Hall Post Office (demolished 1939), the St. Paul Building (demolished 1958), the National Park Bank and the Knox Building. Photo from The New Metropolis, 1899.
