3 1/4" x 4" emulsion on glass negative copied by Rosenfeld and Sons. Image is believed to be a copy from a print of the exterior view of a tower as seen from Madison Square Garden in 1891. The image is outlined with black paper and taped with red tape at the edges to a secondary glass piece to protect the emulsion. Object has a handwritten white and red paper caption glued along the right and a small, round, red dot in the lower left corner. Image is not original but copied by the Rosenfelds from possibly a postcard or old book. The Rosenfeld given numbers on each object corresponds with the dates of being copied as ca. 1923. The handwritten on paper in ink caption reads: "View from Madison / Square Garden - showing / Tower - 1891 - McKim, / Mead + White. Arch. / 18895 - Rosenfeld" and in red pencil the number "23".
