870,000+ NYC Photos?
Posted by tgindy on Tuesday, April 24, 2012 5:34 PM

News just released:  What did you find for model railroading & city prototypes with the recent release of 870,000+ New York City photographs -- Some going back into the mid-1800s?

See NYC Dept. of Records and MSNBC's Photoblog and NY's ABC News.

So far, just in today's news releases, the reminder of street/business signage was insightful.  I had forgotten how many business signs overhung our downtown pedestrian sidewalks, as well as, the wooden and/or display crates in front of retail & wholesale shops.

Another thought, can anybody locate NYC subway, Grand Central, etc. photos?

Conemaugh Road & Traction circa 1956
