Featured Image: Sarah Hewitt, age 22 in 1881, riding sidesaddle in New York City. The building in the background was the Harry Bertholf Hotel, just south of what was then Harlem Lane, now present-day 145th Street, in New York City. It had horse racing stables for trotters and riding horses, and its location along Harlem Lane was noted for being a “great road for fast driving.” Image courtesy of the Cooper Union Archives.
