This picture was taken on January 17, 1907- 117 years ago today! The shot depicts the construction of the stacks in the main branch of the New York Public Library. After almost a decade of construction, the main building had its opening ceremony on May 23, 1911. For more history and pictures of the library under construction, read my post “Then and Now: New York Public Library“.
