Photograph probably taken between 1875, when the Tribune Building was completed and early 1880. The New York Times Building housed the headquarters of O Novo Mundo (sign on the Park Row front), Periodico Illustrado do Progresso da Edade, published in Portuguese, since 1870 by J.C. Rodrigues. O Novo Mundo closed in December 1879.

Construction of the new New York Times Building started in January 1888. The French's Hotel was demolished in 1888 to make way for the World Building completed in 1890. The Benjamin Franklin monument in the Printing House Square was unveiled in January, 1872. More: Park Row in 19th Century
