I'd like a description of entering Grand Central Station and interior circa 1943, or at least information about what it looked like and/or what the experience would be like.

    @PeterDiehr: That's a fun find - Worth an upvote from me if you make it an answer. – Pieter Geerkens Aug 7 '16 at 20:12

    If you go to the NY Public Library's Digital Collections page and search "Grand Central," you will be able to get lots of images (plenty of which are from the period you mention). digitalcollections.nypl.org – rougon Aug 7 '16 at 21:09

Happy centennial! 12 old-timey photos of Grand Central Terminal

Down the hallway to the right, an archway points travelers toward the nearest telegraph — how quaint! (AP Photo)
