Washington Square Aerial View - about the early 1920


Aerial view, looking up Fifth Avenue from Washington Square, New York. Vintage postcard by Fairchild A.C. Corporation. Text on print: «One of the most interesting sights to be seen during a flight over New York City is the historically interesting Washington Square, with the beautiful Washington Arch is just below the entrance to 5th Ave. At the left of Washington Square is the well Greenwich Village section, the location of studios of many artists and the homes of some of New York's oldest aristocracy».

This colorized aerial photo can be dated about the early 1920s. A similar postcard by the same company for Times Square has postmark 1922. The 27-story Art Deco One Fifth Avenue, erected in 1926-1927, is not in this photo.
