The horse-drawn carriages of Union Square

January 28, 2010

It looks like a placid spring or summer day in the postcard of turn-of-the-20th-century Union Square, with carriages waiting for passengers. 

It’s hard to tell, but could that be the George Washington statue way on the left that’s now in the center of the park?

I know it’s not Gandhi. Among other tip-offs, that statue didn’t arrive in the park until 1986.
