Thank you for sharing this nice photograph, and information about the building. Nathaniel Spear was my great-grandfather. It is true that Alex and Maurice were his brothers. However, Nathaniel died in Pittsburgh in 1947 (not in 1968 Florida).
From advertising brochures for Spear and Company, which I have found on eBay, I believe that my great-grandfather introduced his policy of buying on credit a few decades earlier than the 1930's. (One such brochure was printed in 1916.)
I stumbled across your article via an internet search for my family.
I am glad to know that one of my ancestors left such a beautiful building, which I hope to visit during my next trip to New York city.
Kind regards, Jon Spear jdspear@LBL.gov
