    If you zoom in on the skyscrapers, you can see brokers jumping out the windows.....

    That first picture is absolutely perfct. The 30's and 40's were the heyday of black and white photography and I think the epitome of the artistry of B&W was realized then as well. Watch some of the John Ford, John Wayne westerns of that period and marvel at the perfection of the technique.
