A group of eager tourists pose for their portrait as they are about to embark on a tour of New York City.
One of the tourists kept the photograph as a souvenir of a ride taken on a "Touring New York Automobile". The back of the photo declares that "All tours start from Hotel Bartholdi, Broadway and Twenty-Third Street, embracing all points of interest in New York. Each automobile accompanied by uniformed guide speaking principal languages. Fare Round Trip $1.00."
A view of workers completing construction of the forty-seven storey Singer Building - the tallest in the world at the time - would have been a highlight of the excursion.
