Once again I draw on the incredible R.C. Maxwell Collection from the Duke University Library, this view of 147 Perry Street. Try as I may, I could not verify the buildings on the current "GOOGLE EARTH" view to see if the building still stands. There is a building at the intersection in Google that appears to be similar, however the location in relation to the distance Montgomery Street is from the building does not match the terrain. It would appear that the view is looking east.
