Hi you all,

just came across these marvelous pictures that I want to share with you.
The pictures are made in New York during the first 40 years of the 20th century.

When I look a these pictures I wish time travel was possible.

I really do like it when these threads appear. I like you, wish it were possible to go back. I wouldn't even want to interact with the past, just be an observer.

Good find. This city has a lot of history and an awesome skyline! When i look at the NY skyline, it always amazes me how so many magnificent structures could be built by man. Looking at these photos its even more amazing that they were building them a 100 years ago, and at equal or even quicker pace than today.

As a lifetime resident of Manhattan I always enjoy looking at pictures like those.

I was very excited when I heard about these photos but NYC Dept. of Records website has been overwhelmed since the announcement so I haven't been able to see any other than those posted in articles.

For me personally, I absolutely love the shots that show our current infrastructure being built... for example the picture of the Manhattan Bridge tower being put up.

Also, the abundance of elevated tracks in those days (which thank goodness were all moved underground) really gave Manhattan a different look.

While I do find the shots fascinating I don't think I would have wanted to live back then... people tend to think that the past had cleaner air etc. The opposite is true. The smokestacks, factories, people burning their garbage... the noisy elevated trains... Maybe a quick visit... not a move.
