Carriage Ride in the City
There is no description on this photo but it's two women taking a carriage ride in the city. Look closely at the woman in the front - she has a small white dog on her lap. This is probably a large city, given that the photo is from Harris & Ewing either New York or Washington DC. (Maybe someone will recognize the place?) But the practice of going out for the day with your small dog is at least a century old!
