I really liked this 1935 photograph of Broome Street in Manhattan --- and I was sure I had the perfect photograph for this theme. I went through my uncharted photograph collection to no avail. I really must do some organization of my collection!

I also liked the variety of subject matter in this photograph. Signs, horse drawn wagons, early automobiles, dock workers and business men in suits, ships and riggings --- all give this photograph a sense of purpose and life. This area now houses the South Street Seaport Museum.
Sepians have to offer in the way of signs, fellows with their hands in their pockets, or whatever takes their eye.
