ah the Chrysler building, possibly the worlds greatest monument to Art Deco!...I've seen the book those 2 stills come from, a fascinating look at the construction of that amazing building. nice post Thomas!

Thanks Artman — that cover seemed to cry out for these photos to accompany it.

What a great period for architecture and culture in general.

Thanks, Thom! I never realized what this cover referred to.

Some of these NY covers can be sorta mysterious. There's still a few I haven't quite figured out.

I get dizzy just looking at those two photos, Thom. Great stuff.

Where'd that feller in the second pic flick his cigarette ashes???? That's what I hear people saying in my head.
