[First Rockefeller Center Tree, 1931]
This picture is of Rockefeller Center’s First Tree in 1931. Although the Rockefeller Center Tree Tradition didn’t officially begin until 1933, on December 24, 1931 these construction workers decorated a 20-foot tree for the holidays. The mess in the background is Rockefeller Plaza under construction. In 1936, this area became the ice skating rink. Below is a picture of this year’s 80-foot tree!
