Here’s a lovely street scene, also from New York’s Fifth Avenue, c. 1903.

In the foreground (lower left) is a Hansom Cab waiting by the curb. To its right is a Brougham, which might’ve been hired (like a private taxi or town car), or might’ve been privately owned and driven by the occupant / owner’s coachman.

There are also some open-air vehicles.

And to the right of the street sign, but on the other side of the street … there’s what appears to be the same Fifth Ave. Omnibus that we saw in yesterday’s photo. And these horses are still not wearing saddles or breeching, so clearly that setup worked for them.
