Broadway, arguably the most famous street in the world, is the only one that runs the full length of Manhattan, which was not always the case. Founded at New York's earliest settlement, Broadway was extended in length and evolved in character over the centuries. The postcard era, roughly 1905 to 1915, was an exciting time in the history of Broadway as aperiod that saw the construction of some of New York's most historically significant buildings. Along Broadway chronicles the growth of this iconthrough the postcard medium but with selective imagery before and after that golden age of the postcard.
