Photographs of New York City from the 1930’s

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. postcardold photograph Empire State Building New York City George Washington Bridge at Dusk New York City Brooklyn Bridge New York City old photograph of Manhattan old photograph Empire State Building New York City Skyline old photograph Empire State Building New York City flatiron building New York City old photograph Fulton Street Fish Market Manhattan Grant's Tomb Riverside Drive Manhattan hanover square manhattan Saint John the Divine Manhattan old photograph midtown Manhattan from the Queensboro Bridge old photograph of Manhattan Queen Mary ship Cunnard White Star Line Manhattan Soldier's and Sailor's Tomb Manhattan old black and white photograph lower manhattan Brooklyn Bridge New York City Aerial View of the Empire State Building Manhattan old black and white photograph Times Square old black and white photograph Manhattan west

About redbudart

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, just outside of Portland, Oregon. My passions are cuisine, wine, horticulture, art, and vintage things, especially old books. I moved here in 2014, work a day job in finance, and spend the rest of my time working on my dream of living off the land, and teaching young people how to as well. Stop by my Etsy shops, where all proceeds are going towards the goal. Thank you and Namaste!
