Grand Central Depot, New York – 1872
American: Mid 20th Century

14 x 20 inches, image
New York’s Grand Central railroad station in 1872, based on a woodblock engraving from that period, but reprinted on a larger scale. This view dates to when the station was the largest building for blocks around, and its Victorian architecture was unobscured by surrounding skyscrapers. Also shown are pedestrians, vendors and horse-drawn carriages.
Condition: Generally very good noting a slight crease in the lower right corner, and two minor losses at the upper right and lower left corners.
