Notes
Content : Printed on image: "Sydney Adamson, 1903." Printed on border: "An interesting phase of New York's transportation problem is the proposal to construct underground moving sidewalks or platforms. The first one planned, of which the details are shown in the above drawing, is to go from Williamsburg to Bowling Green, and is to connect on the way with the surface and elevated cars. The fare will be one cent, and the speed will be from five to nine miles an hour. The reader is referred to an article on page 361." Written on border: "Feb. 1903."
