New York circa 1912. "Fifth Avenue near 42nd Street." Among the many establishments making this their address is the curiously named Bureau of Social Requirements. 8x10 glass negative, Detroit Publishing Co.
from Old Images of New York - such a touching comment, i have to share: Isabelle Schneider: "The photos in this group are so touching. I could really look at them all day as they get posted. This is the world my grand and great relatives lived in." and i always imagine i'll see a relative in one of these photos!
