Description

According to the label on the slide, this is a view of State Street in Albany, New York.

A horse drawn carriage is seen, as well as a street car making its way down the track.

Several buildings that are in the view still exist.  Those include the New York State Capitol Building (built 1899) and St. Peter's Episcopal Church (built 1860) at 107 State Street.

A large advertisement on the side of a building to the left urges the reader to "Cook with Gas".
