Notes

: "Lawns and hedges after one year's growth," according to Commissioner Williams (Vol. I, p. 45 front, Williams scrapbooks); the date is therefore c. 1903. The absence of both the Singer Building (completed 1908) and the Woolworth Building (completed 1913) from the skyline further verifies the early date of the photograph.
