The following account is provided on separate letterpress along with photographic plate:

“This photograph is the result of a snap-shot from a second story window, the camera being held out at arm’s length to secure the animated street scene.
The camera used was the new Folding Pocket Kodak, which gives a picture, the proportions of which fall in very happily with many subjects.”
