Any photos taken within the Entrance Building?

Recommended Posts

The thought hit me, I didn't didn't realize there were doors on both sides of the elevated entrance building. 

Are there photos of the 1st floor interior?

See the operations manual drawing, p. 47, that Bill Cotter posted on his site:

The front doors were for the restrooms. The sides of the entrance building had multiple doors for offices of Police, Pinkerton, New York Telephone, Allied Maintenance, record storage, R.E.A., and so on.

Unlikely to find photos of these areas, I think.

The strangest location for the women pinkerton entrance, under a bridge and far away from any of the main doors.  My assumption is that the location would have been in a more busier location and closer to the main locker room.  Unless the AmEx or Greyhound had security near there, just odd.

There are probably some at the NY Public Library in the Fair Corp files but I can't recall seeing anything yet.

Wayne, agreed, harder to find.  Good thought, Bill.  Might be able to get a glimpse of what the behind the scenes looked and felt like if one or a few were captured somewhere.
