Same photo, today?

As best I can tell, this is the same corner today, now a massive hotel complex. Amazing how much the street has changed. If I have the wrong spot, please correct me!

Mind where you step

The second lady from the left might be wearing the hem of her skirt almost immodestly high because she is mindful of #2, while also being cautious about #1.

I could almost be convinced that there used to be a television show called "Bullitt". Thos W. Bullitt, esq. occupies the corner office of the top floor.

[You're probably thinking of the 1968 Steve McQueen film. - tterrace]

Yes, that's the thing I almost remembered.

Levy Brothers

"Levy Brothers Good Clothes for Men and Boys." The Levy Bros. department store is located 2 blocks down on the left side; shopped there often with my parents in the 50s and 60s. More here.

You Have Been Warned !

No, I think the sign on the support wires above is intended for the car operators. This intersection must be known to have problems with pedestrians. If you have to take a hit, do it straight on and roll onto the shelf provided. Be sure to have a nickel handy in case the conductor insists on collecting for the ride.
