The year is 1893. Since we’re experiencing something of a cold snap in Southern California, this icy cold scene seems particularly fitting. The image was captured in front of a New York City trolley terminal by noted photographer, Alfred Stieglitz. Before the days of electric trolleys, the cars were drawn by horses, as seen here. Stieglitz has managed to capture the mood of the moment, right down to the steam from the horses’ breath. Notice too, that the cars rolled on tracks, as the electric cars would. By the end of World War I, the era of the horse-drawn trolley was winding to a close. Now, nearly 100 years later, this slice of New York City’s bygone days is recaptured in color for a modern generation to appreciate.
