This great vintage photograph from around 1908 shows Café Martin on the southwest corner of Fifth Avenue and 26th Street, on the corner of Madison Square Park. The recently completed Flatiron Building would be 3 blocks down Fifth Avenue to the left.

Here is a Google Streetview of that intersection today.

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