THE S.S. NORMANDIE BURNS AND CAPSIZES IN NYC. On Feb 9, 1942 The S.S. Normandie caught fire and rolled over while moored at Pier 88 at W49 Street. Reportedly, sparks from a welding torch caused the blaze. I have heard other theories as to who was responsible, including the Nazis and Lucky Luciano.

In 1901, the crossroads of 23rd Street, Fifth Avenue, and Broadway had not yet taken final form. The Flatiron Building was just beginning construction--which you can see from the big white fence wrapped around the site. The grand Heinz 57 ad on the side of the Cumberland Hotel was the first electric sign in the U.S., illuminated by 1,200 bulbs that used $90 of electricity a year. Within a year, both the sign and the Cumberland would be demolished.

How could parents ensure that their children were getting sunlight and fresh air when living in apartment buildings? The baby cage, ca. 1937 And other amazing historical photos
Baby cages for 1930s apartment families who wanted their children to get enough sunlight...."shocking and hilarious vintage photos"
Baby cage, 1937 (old photos of London). Yes, people built cages outside the windows of their apartments or 2nd story homes so children could hang out and get fresh air. It wasn't a cruelty, it was truly thought to be a solution to the problem of little ones being stifled in their homes. But still....dangerous stuff!
"In Patent 1448235, July 19, 1922, Edith Head of Spokane, Washington invented a Portable Baby Cage that was designed to be hung outside the windows of apartment buildings. To provide “proper fresh air from the outside. With these facts in view it is the purpose of the present invention to provide an article of manufacture for babies and young children, to be suspended upon the exterior of a building adjacent an open window, wherein the baby or young child may be placed.” Wat.
