Remarks

This photograph and Key Set numbers 1385 and 1386 show the construction of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel (lower left corner), which officially opened on 1 October 1931, and the GE Building (center), which was completed April 1931. Also visible is the Hotel and Industrial Mart at 515 Madison Avenue (left background of Key Set numbers 1385 and 1386) in the early stages of construction, which was completed in late summer 1931. All three photographs were made before April 1931.
