Architects dressed as their buildings

It doesn’t get more terrific than this: a picture of famous architects dressed up as their buildings they’ve designed, not looking too thrilled. It’s a bit hard to make out the buildings, but, in order: Fuller Building (Stewart Walker), Waldorf-Astoria (Leonard Schultze), Squibb Building (Ely Jacques Kahn), Chrysler Building (William Van Alen), 1 Wall Street (Ralph Walker), Metropolitan Tower (D.E.Ward), and, of course, the Museum of New York (Joseph H. Freelander). Chrysler Building looks really fancy.
