Photographed in 1897, this night-time Manhattan view shows the Savoy Hotel with a queue of carriages along  a rain-slicked Fifth Ave. 

The Glow of Night — New York,  is the seventh plate presented with the portfolio pagination.

The night-time “glow” effect in this plate is achieved by printing the photograph on a sheet of yellow chine collé.
