An unusual lateral sight of the main facade of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) building capturing the "Integrity Protecting the Works of Man", the group of marble sculptures (1904) of John Quincy Adams Ward. In compliance with the spirit behind 19th-century capitalism the emphasis would be on physical effort, muscle power, the working classes. Production - businessmen - need both mind and muscle, thought and action.
