Here are four pictures, all unrelated to each other. Make what you will of them.
First of all, our favorite way to look at Nos. 25 and 45. The only question is how the photographer got the shot ‒ it appears to be straight down.

The House of Libra, from a picture that ran in Tudor City View sometime in the 1940s. Located near the corner 0f 41st and Second, the shop didn't last for long.

Next up, an eastern view of Tudor City, which seems to be rather reminiscent of our earlier post, Tudor City on the Prairie.  As it turns out, this time the grass is of the potted variety and lines a terrace wall of The Cloister. A reverse view, below.

Finally, a photo collage of the movie Scarface made by an unknown photographer. He was attempting to photograph the actor in the phone booth ‒ Al Pacino ‒ but his camera wasn't good enough. Oh, well.
