Christmas in New York: Rare Photos from Turn of the Century

It was a time when William McKinely was finishing up his tenure as President of the United States and Theodore Roosevelt was starting his. It was a time when our families were stepping off the boats to start their life anew in a foreign city. A time before The Great War gripped the nation at its core.

These are rare photographs from the early 1900s depicting captured moments of Christmas in New York City; pictures of a long forgotten era.
