Lovely photo.

Great shot indeed. It prompts me to post this link to a photo of what it looked like prior to 1922. Really a shame that it exists in such a truncated form:

I would love a photo essay of South Loop before & after photos... including seeing some of the scenes within the vice districts back in those days

Here's a book I got at the Book Fair a few years ago:

Also, I'd like to know where to get photos or a book on the old Grand Central station. I've been able to find some photos on the web, but would like to see interior shot.
