In addition to the Bernard Gussow (1881-1957) piece from a previous blog, here are two more from Up From The City Streets: A Life of Alfred E. Smith. I searched the web and can't find any traces of these two pieces elsewhere, so you're likely seeing these here for the first time.

On the left, Al Smith and his family lived at 25 Oliver Street for much of their lives, with the exception of the time they spent in the Governor's mansion in Albany, New York. On the right is Tammany Hall, the political stronghold of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

This page was scanned at a very high quality, and a black and white effect was added to remove the faded color of the now 90-year-old pages from the 1927 book.
