The Skyline of Lower Manhattan

18 Aug

The skyline of Lower Manhattan, as seen in 1876:

And in 1931:

The top two images are from the July 1931 Popular Mechanics, while the bottom two are random steals from the net. Unfortunately, very few people seem to take photos from that location – almost all images of Manhattan + Brooklyn Bridge are from the other side of the bridge.
