Fabulous Photos of Christmas Shopping In New York City, December 1910

New York has always been famous for its shopping and especially Christmas shopping. It wasn’t much different in 1910 when most of these photos were taken for the George Bain Agency – one of America’s earliest news picture agencies.

The photographs Bain produced and gathered for distribution through his news service were worldwide in their coverage, but there was a special emphasis on life in New York City. Incidentally the nation’s first public Christmas tree wasn’t installed until 1912 in Madison Square Park and lit with bulbs donated by the Edison Company.
