Original caption: One Minute to Midnight, December 31, 1899. Under brass gas chandeliers, merry-making New Yorkers prepare a welcome for January 1, 1900 in Bustanoby's Restaurant, one of the smart wining and dining place of the McKinley era. The glaring gaslihgt, the costumes and the well-tended moustaches set the scene apart from the electric hilarity of Broadway in Truman era.
