Remarks

This photograph and Key Set number 1356 depict the RCA Victor Building, which became the General Electric Building shortly after its completion in early 1931 (hereafter referred to as the GE Building). Based on the composition and the small 4 × 5-inch format, these two images were probably made at the same time as Key Set numbers 1350–1354.

Lifetime Exhibitions
