This photo of the Murtha and Schmol Co. was taken on June 5, 1916. The company was located at 814 East 14th Street, mere steps from the East River, on the northern border of what is today Alphabet City. At this time, the neighborhood was in transition. Originally Little Germany, by the early 20th Century many of the Germans had relocated uptown to Yorkville, and the neighborhood was repopulated by other waves of immigrants, including Jews, Italians, and Irish.
