I guess we know the date on this photograph -- August 14, 1945. Howard took this shot of VJ Day -- Victory over Japan Day -- late in the afternoon looking up Broadway from 4th Avenue. I suspect we could tell if you're of a certain age if you can correctly pronounce Dr. Beauchamp. Also of interest is a sign for Aircraft Emplyment (upstairs at 1023 Fourth). Looks like Walker's (before it became Walker-Scott?) is a couple of doors up from Dr. Beauchamp.
