"No. 1 Wall Street, the former Irving Trust Company headquarters, is located at the intersection of Wall Street and Broadway in Manhattan's financial district. Historic Trinity Church is shown at the center of the print. In printing most impressions, Eby left a skim of ink on parts of the buildings to create tone."- Giardina
