Despite the 1914 postmark, this photograph was probably taken much earlier. Richardson published many of his cards a very long time after the photographs on which they were based were taken. As the onion dome of the Great Equatorial Building was erected in 1893, the postcard cannot be earlier than this. The serial number of the card suggests that it was probably published between 190810.
