Great postcard taken by a photographer at “117th St., looking West from Morningside Drive, New York City” in Harlem, New York, between 1900-1920.

Many of these apartment buildings were amongst the first to use elevators in residential buildings, they were built for Harlem New York’s prosperous middle class during the first two decades of the twentieth century.

Looking west down 117th Street from Morningside Drive, an ornate entrance stands to the right in front of one entrance of a building, while an American flag flies from a window on another and a family rides west in their “horseless carriage“.
