    A historic look at old New York . I see the 48 Star Flag of our United States, but also I see what looks like a 45 Star Flag? I suppose it was perfectly fine to use an older flag .

    I don't see the earlier flag, but the camera shook on this one and the negative has deteriorated, so it's hard to be sure.

    [] I agree. Not counting the banner ,its the fourth flag from the right I believe is the older flag

    Looking at the hi-res version, they all look like 48 stars to me. I think what you are looking at is caused by damaged emulsion. Also, it would be odd to hang a flag that was two flags earlier than the present one, especially on 5th Avenue.
