Seventh Avenue, North Of One Hundred and Twenty Fifth Street, New York 1912

$_57 (4)Great photo-postcard looking north taken of Seventh Avenue, North Of One Hundred and Twenty Fifth Street, Harlem, New York 1912.

It’s a great turn of the century image that looks like it was taken on the south side of the tree-lined street showing a “Soup,” “Turkish Trophies” cigarette billboard ad, and a pristine Harlem Alhambra at 126th Street and Seventh Avenue. In true turn of the century Harlem style awnings covering every retail space to block out the (possible summer) sun (source).
