Here are some more souvenir photos, this time New York City. They came in the package that you can see here, and all twenty were still inside. I wish I could date these views precisely, but with the emphasis on the Empire State building among the scenes, they probably date from the beginning of its reign as the tallest building in the world, which began in 1931 and ended when the World Trade Center went up in 1972. Exact date aside, the views seem timeless, iconic, and are truly beautiful. Scroll down for views of the Fulton Street Fish Market, the R.M.S. Queen Mary, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the ‘playground of the nation’-Times Square.
