If Google Street View existed in 1911 (48 Pics)

It is one of the most famous and expensive streets in the world.
Fifth Avenue in New York is dotted with hundreds of department stores, high-end fashion labels, swanky hotels and some of the Big Apple's most famous attractions - including the Empire State Building.
Stretching from Washington Square Park all the way up to 143rd Street in Harlem, it splits Manhattan and its 1.7million residents into East and West.
But before the thoroughfare became the commercial superpower it is today, it was the home of small, family-owned businesses.
Pictures taken in 1911 show what Fifth Avenue would have looked like if Google Street View existed  more than 100 years ago.
