Taxis in front of the Hotel Manhattan, 1912

Taxis in front of the Hotel Manhattan, 1912

Taxicabs wait for a fare in front of the Hotel Manhattan on 42nd and Madison. Notice the dirty duster the cabby is wearing. Men and women of this era often wore such coats to protect their clothing from the dirt of the road as they drove around in open cabs. The signs behind the men advertise the Archibald Foss Real Estate Agency, a detective agency, and a "Depot for Manhattan Shirts."
