Sightseeing New York: 1901

This photo mounted on heavy card stock was found in a box of old family photos; it might be a souvenir. Probably taken in warm weather as the ladies have short sleeves and spring-like hats. Note this is Bus #4. I'm posting it to complement other similar photos of the Green Car Sight-Seeing Services photos already on Shorpy. View full size.

The conductor is sporting a swastika badge on his hat. Looks like another painted in the center of the sign on the coach side. Before adoption by the Nazi party the swastika was a symbol of good luck in many cultures.
