A technically superb and imposing time exposure (some movement in the tree branches overhead), showing close to a hundred elegantly-attired Club members, a handsome four-in-hand behind them, at, presumably, their destination at the end of this Sunday excursion. Not surprisingly, they appear to be a prosperous and fairly young crowd: all are men, and one holds a banjo, although the prevailing atmosphere appears to be a serious one, perhaps a result of their successful exertions.

An engaging and important historic record of New York coaching in its glory days.
