View of the New York Stock Exchange at Broad and Wall Streets showing the main Greek Revival building (1903) designed by George Post. To the right is a small portion of the 23-story tower added by architects Trowbridge and Livingston, which was completed in 1922. In the foreground on the right is the statue of George Washington in front of Federal Hall.

Condition: Generally very good with the usual light overall toning and wear. Some slight irregularities in toning from former tissue paper facing can be matted out for overall consistency. Some remnants of old hinging, upper margin, can be matted out.
