Grand Central Station Information Booth

Grand Central Station Information Booth
On 42nd Street, Grand Central Station, remodeled in 1900, is beautiful and orderly. This posed photo of the station staff providing information shows another job function-customer service, which would grow exponentially in the 20th Century. Note the original 1871 train shed in the background.
