On Wednesday, the Tenement Museum will officially launch its new online photo database.  The resource is years in the making, and features hundreds of pictures, some dating back to turn of the century.  The folks behind the project were kind enough to give Bowery Boogie an exclusive preview.  So, to celebrate its imminent release, we will feature one photograph from the archive each day this week.
