Al Ravenna

Absolutely beautiful photo. Though aware of the NYW-T&S, I don't recall running across Mr. Ravenna's work before. Poking around the Library of Congress yielded some choice bits. Thanks for the revelation, Dave.

Water Street

In the next couple years the city widened Water Street, running diagonally across the bottom of the pic. Looks like they've already started demolishing buildings to make room.
