Notes
Source note : From

Content: Printed on image: "In Maloney's 'Family Entrance,' as the night draws on apace, Roundsman Grady of the Finest goes to irrigate his face." "On his box the sleepy cabby dreams and gets an awful scare, dreams a passenger escaped him without paying double fare." "At the curb Cornelius Epstein feels the cold, but isn't blue, for he sells a 'bair o' shoestrings' once in every hour or two." "Homeward trips the weary actress, bold and brave she fears no harm. That's her Living Picture costume in the bundle 'neath her arm." "She's as proud as any princess--Daisy Heiress, wrapped in furs--Lord De Brokeleigh isn't pretty, but she's bought him, and he's her's." "Down the street the chilly actor trudges on for many a block, 'I'm in luck,' he says, devoutly, 'that this coat is out of hock!'" "Oft the car-conductor shivers, but his mind is free from cares, for he never knocks down people nights--he only 'knocks down' fares." "On the corner 'Auntie' Mooney, o'er her lack of trade doth grieve. She's been in the apple business since the days of Mother Eve." "Chimmy Reagan, selling papers, bundled up in all his wraps, has but one regret in winter: it's too cold for 'shooting craps.'" Written on border: "Jan. 12, 1895."
