Photograph of a view of Wall Street with the Trinity Church in the background, New York City, 1927. Automobiles carefully drive between the crowded sidewalks of people at center as large buildings stand over the street from either side. The stone building which houses the banking house of J.P. Morgan & Co. stands in the foreground on the left while the column-guarded U.S. Treasury stands on the right behind a statue of George Washington. Two skyscrapers riddled with small windows stand next to each of these buildings. The tall Trinity Church with the massive steeple stands at the end of the street in the background. Caption reads "Wall Street with Trinity Church in the background. The great nerve center of all American business and the financial barometer of the Country where finance and transportation, the two determining powers in business, have their headquarters. The name 'Wall Street' is derived from the fact that the street on the left is the banking house of J.P. Morgan & Co., next to it is the new Stock Exchange Building. On the right is art of the U.S. Treasury, approached by flight of steps bearing a large bronze statue of George Washington erected in 1983".
