Architect Occupies Wall Street, 1931

Scott Edelman sez, “It seemed serendipitous that on a day when so many out there are occupying Wall Street I should run across this wonderful 1931 photo of Ralph Walker, the architect who designed One Wall Street, LITERALLY occupying Wall Street at the Society of Beaux-Arts Architects annual ball. With him are Ely Jacques Kahn, designer of the Squibb Building, and William Van Alen, designer of (isn’t it obvious?) the Chrysler Building. I hope the event took place in a room with tall doors and high ceilings.”

(Thanks, Scott!)
