Photograph of a drawing. "A long-familiar landmark is now in the process of modernization with construction underway on what has been know for approximately 41 years as the Loew's State Building on the south west corner of 7th and Broadway. When the rejuvenation has been completed, the structure will be rechristened The State Building. The initial work will modernize 12 shops on the ground level. With the completion of this phase, the remainder of the 12-story building will be re-worked in a process which will give it an aluminum sheathed exterior divided between windows with vertical panels of porcelain enamel. A new entrance and lobby will also be provided. Over $350,000." -- typed note attached to verso, dated 19 September 1955. "Moderninzation of the United Building" -- caption below drawing.
