National Shoe and Leather Bank - 1894


View toward the old National Shoe & Leather Bank building, with busy Chambers Street scene of pushcarts, wagons and horse-drawn trolley. The City Hall Park is on the left. In 1921, this 13-story building, at 271 Broadway, was sold to the Chemical Bank. It was demolished and the site is now occupied by Tower 270, completed in 1930.
