Thread: New York 1930 Robert A Stern

    Default New York 1930 Robert A Stern

    Has any one read the book New York 1930 Architecture & Urbanism between the two world wars or have it in their collection? I am keen to know if there any interior photos of 25 Broadway Cunard Building? If there are can any one please post them as it is very difficult & expensive to get the book in the UK,
    Thanks & Regards
    Howard

    Yes have searched & searched & posted on many forums over the past few years, I think these may be of some importance as see a lot of buildings in NY are being renovated & these have history, I am in UK & any one in the US can help will be rewarded.. I mean the two clocks I have,

    Sorry if you've already worked with this, but the NYPL Digital Gallery is excellent for this type of thing (although it seems to be a little broken at the moment).

    There's a smallish photo of the ground floor banking hall. I can scan it if you like (tomorrow), but the quality won't be great.


    This is much better (downloading disabled):

    This is almost the exact same view as in the book:
