Captured around 1900, this great vintage photograph shows a vendor selling roasted peanuts to two kids from his street-side peanut stand. Though labeled as West 42nd Street, it's tough to place exactly where this spot would be today as nearly every structure between Times Square and the Hudson river has been replaced since that time. Check out the specimen page on the Library of Congress for more information on the photograph.
