American illustrator Vernon Howe Bailey was a prolific sketch artist in the early 20th century, working for several major publications including the Harper's Weekly and the Boston Herald, as well as for the government as a courthouse and military sketch artist.
Bailey sketched almost everything he saw, including New York City street life. Enjoy this small collection of century-old hand-drawn sketches of the City compiled by our friends at Untapped Cities.
