In the process of looking at millions of photographs over a ten year period, we have seen hundred if not thousands of images of Times Square in New York City. Of all those photographs, this image stands alone as the best representation of Times Square we have ever seen. Taken in 1931 definitively by the film "The Smiling Lieutenant" being played, the image has it all: shoppers, people, cars, trolleys, signs, marquees, flags etc. An absolute masterpiece of photography from the greatest city in the world, offered here for the first time ever!
