Here’s another one that has obviously seen better days, but that has an image I like enough to post and share. 43 Canal Street would have been at the fringes of the Little Italy neighborhood around the time this photo was taken, and I don’t think it’s just the address that makes me suspect he’s of Italian descent or origin. Today that address is on the edges of Chinatown. Out of curiosity, I looked online to see what’s in that location now. And guess what, it’s a photo service!
