Picturing a World

Newsstand

One of the gee-whiz pleasures for me in researching New York City at the turn of the 20th C is gawking at high-resolution photos on line. In the full view of this one at the Shorpy site, you can read ads on the El staircase and titles on the newsstand. I'm delighted with the picture because my heroine Mattie travels on New York public transportation and magazines figure into the plot.

Fashion note: get a load of the size of the hat worn by the lady at the foot of the stairs!
