Note the Seventh Street Market House in the background.
The curious thing here is that while these two cards are for all practical purposes identical, there's a woman in the card on the left, who has mysteriously disappeared from the card on the right. Look carefully at the larger version of the card on the right and you can see where she's been edited out. And the card on the left has edited out all of the overhead wires that show in the card on the right. Our thought is that they both plagiarized a third card, as yet uncovered by NKY Views.
