NYC Vintage Image Of The Day: Dear Miss Taylor..., 1937

This postcard addressed to Miss F.E.L. Taylor in Franklin, Mass., was processed at Grand Central Station in NYC on April 22, 1937. "Mama" writes, "Dear E, Is everything okay? I hope so. Have been thinking about you all and trust everything is O.K. now. Hope that stove and everything is working fine. Love, Mama." In a P.S., she instructs E to "meet the 10:30 train."Front of the postcard shows the Northeast side of Fifth Avenue and 34th Street. Amid the crowd on sidewalks are cars and a double-decker bus. The car parked facing north indicates that Fifth Avenue, at the time, was a two-way street.
