Dramatic 1932 photograph of the ruins of Coney Island after a fire swept through the iconic amusement park and destroyed it. One of the only images of the fire we have seen, this is a nice clear example from the International News and stamped on the back with a detailed paper caption. Photo appears to be nearly perfect but it has some wear on the upper right corner.
