Vintage Photograph Shows Fifth Avenue in Midtown Fully Colorized Circa 1910

Photo: Imgur

This great vintage photograph shows the view down Fifth Avenue from the east sidewalk between 35th and 36th streets in Midtown around 1910. Fully colorized by Imbued With Hues, the artist fully researched the colors typically found in that era for the objects in the photograph, then skillfully applied them to the original black and white image from the Library of Congress. Here is a Google StreetView of how the exact same view looks today:
