Subj: New York City 1940's Street a View Old City Tax Photos
These images are a wonderful resource for seeing the buildings where our ancestors lived. On that same site, there are also tax photos taken in color in the 1970s and 1980. But there are fewer images in this collection and most do not have exact street addresses unlike the 1940s images. In the 1970s and '80s NYC was in financial difficulty and this is reflected in these images. There are many burned out structures and vacant lots where building once stood. The scene looks like London after the Blitz.
