On this day 80 years ago

This image is of Manhattan, New York on the 26th of October, 1938. It shows 20th Street between Second and First Avenues.

While the USA marked the introduction of minimum wage laws that month, Nazis were marching into the Sudetenland and expanding the Nuremberg Laws to ban Jews from many public spaces, while the Imperial Japanese Army was overtaking Canton in China.
