Below, the crowded street of Broadway in 1902. This scene on Lower Broadway, part of a film by Robert K. Bonine, was published by the American Mutoscope and Biograph Company. It shows a view which appears to be looking north on Broadway at the intersection of Wall Street, in front of Trinity Church. The sidewalk along Broadway is crowded with people, and the traffic in both streets is very heavy. Source: Library of Congress Motion Picture, Broadcasting and Recorded Sound Division.
