Aerial NYC 1930


Katherine sent us the link to this lovely photo from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It was taken in - we believe - New York by the Hungarian-born photographer László Moholy-Nagy (1895-1946). The title is 7 A.M. (New Year's Morning) and it was taken around 1930.

Ironically, the credit for the photograph reads, "Ford Motor Company Collection, Gift of Ford Motor Company and John C. Waddell, 1987"

Lovely shot. Reminds us of this Copenhagen version, taken in 2007:

I don't think it is a street in New York City; it looks more like Market Street in San Francisco, California, USA.
