This photo of a Harlem Street scene has almost no clues to where it was taken.
The only thing I can speculate on is that the photograph likely shows the south side of a street, as the reflection in the storefront window indicates that only one of the many windows across the street has a window awning – ubiquitous on south and often east and west facing facades, and often absent on northern facades.
The listing on Ebay, refers to the two sitting women who are using crates to sit in an unrented storefront’s doorway.
But notice how their attention has been diverted from their newspapers to something on their right.
A larger view shows a cropped item. A cart or pram – likely converted to use for selling food, sits on the left of the photo – where the women are suddenly looking. Perhaps a customer or passerby has taken a look or taken interest in whatever might be for sale.
