Next stop, #TransitTuesday. This photograph shows New York City's 14th St. elevated line station, and was taken to document the work of Ward and Gow, a New York advertising agency credited as being among the first firms to systematize advertising in New York's transit network stations and trains.

This photograph was included in an album compiled by the company in 1910. Each of the fifteen images in the album includes a location in the lower right side of the image and, since many of the advertisements are for theater or vaudeville shows, for which Ward and Gow also did advertising, it is possible to date some of these images within a month's time.
