Jefferson Market: 1939 No EL

In 1939 during the height of the Depression, this is the way that Jefferson Market Court looked - - with a clear expanse of Sixth Avenue fronting it, and a black and white West 9th Street signpost perched to the side.
• • The Sixth Avenue El saw its finale in 1936.
• • Moving northward along the avenue, a pedestrian could see advertisements for Globe Electric Sign Corp. and Premier Artificial Flowers, Inc. in the near distance.
