    Foundation block #31 with inscriptions, National Bond And Share, Pacific Mills, Telautograph Corp, L&C Mayers Co. There are a couple different addresses not sure what building it came from. Looks like was painted three different colors maybe four. I like yard sales.

      Cire, Cool. :-)

      I like looking up old addresses, although it can be tricky, given that buildings can get demolished/replaced, or the numbering/naming of streets can change.

      The building at 545 Fifth Avenue was built in 1930 and used to be the Hotel Lorraine:

      The building at 261 Fifth Avenue was built in 1928:

      The brownstone at 585 Madison Avenue:

      The building at 16 West 61st Street was built in 1924:

      The building at 14 Wall Street was finished in 1912:
