This great vintage photograph shows a few Italian bread peddlers selling loaves on Mulberry Street in Little Italy, circa 1900. Trying to find the present day location of this photograph is difficult as the only identifiable information is the caption, and the P. Avallone on the store behind. Some research shows that P. Avallone was at 71 Mulberry Street, though the building in this shot has been replaced and the street's addressing tweaked slightly over time. A reasonable guess due to the building corner and curved curb would suggest this was snapped on the northwest corner of Mulberry Street and Bayard Street. Here is a Google StreetView of that intersection, and the current building that sits there:

Broome St & Mulberry St
