#19 - the aftermath of the Lexington Bomb which killed 41 people. The area was rebuilt in only 2 months.

The pictures are great but they are no good without what the heck we're looking at. No description, no year.

Nature,

#29 is a newspaper pic of Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia smashing slots (in the '30s) as part of his crusade against the Mafia. He also banned pinball machines because of gambling, and they weren't made legal again in New York until 1976.
