Vintage Photograph of R.H. Macy and Co. on 34th St. and Broadway Circa 1905

Photo: LOC

This vintage photograph from around 1905 shows the R.H. Macy and Co. building on 34th Street and Broadway in Herald Square, long before it swallowed the whole block and became a tourist destination.

Though you can't see much due to an unfortunate construction plywood wall, here is a Google Street View of what the building looks like today from approximately the same angle.

Check out the specimen page on the Library of Congress for more info on the photo.
