"Grand Central...the World's Greatest Railway Terminal", by Wm. D. Middleton, has several photos of Towers A & B. There's a photo of Tower F (closed long before I even knew what a train is), here.

I doubt you'll find photos of the current control center. Security has been very tight; it's rare that even the insider tours get to visit there. I have photos of the OCC, but I won't share them, since I don't want to have to explain myself to the MTA PD.
