Tourism in New York City has been a hot industry for centuries, evidenced by this great vintage photograph from 1904 showing a group of tourists on an electric tour bus. Touring with a company called "Seeing New York", the bus is parked outside of the Flatiron Building (then called the Fuller Building), only completed two years prior in 1902.
