NYC Vintage Image Of The Day: 'Home-Going Crowds,' 1923

1923 photograph of after-work New Yorkers heading for public transportation, taken by the New York Edison Co., for an illustrated book in honor of the 46th National Electric Light Assn. convention. Note the streetcars visible in the background. Man, it seems like little has changed in the past 90 years, huh?"The Home-going Crowds on West 33rd Street Making their way to the various Tubes, Subways, Elevateds and so forth."
