The last of the Horse Drawn Carriages

Just before the last of these horsecars was banished from the streets of New York City, a photographer snapped this photo of one of the last horsecars riding the rails in 1917 Manhattan, while the electric trolley, powered by the conduit between the rails, passed by the fading fixture of transportation.

This photo was shot on Broadway just north of the intersection with Broome Street. The car is headed southbound.
