I bought this framed photograph at a garage sale. The vehicle appears to be a Lansden Electric. Apparently the photo was taken on a cold day in New York because the passengers are wearing heavy coats and all have rugs over their knees. The Hotel Bartholdi, it seems, was well known in the period, and a search reveals that the Green Car Sight-Seeing Service made photographs available to patrons. This one is 27 inches by 16 inches. I would like to know more about Green Car, the Hotel, and Lansden.
