Seen from this angle Grand Central Terminal is indeed the cathedral of transportation it was intended to be. This photo was taken not long after GCT entirely replaced Grand Central Station, which was torn down in phases between 1903 and 1913. The perspective here is approximately eye-level with Mercury, who anchors the statue "Transportation," which faces south at East 42nd Street and Park Avenue.
