Trucking Down to the Vanderbilt Cup Races

The vast majority of spectators to the Vanderbilt Cup Races of Long Island came from New York City.

The vast majority of spectators to the Vanderbilt Cup Races of Long Island from 1904 to 1910 came from New York City. They utilized every mode of transportation available including; trains, automobiles, horses, trolleys and trucks which were the precursors to buses.

Can anyone identify this vehicle and the most likely year the photo was taken? There is a clue in the photo posted on VanderbiltCupRaces.com .

Enjoy,
