The charming illustration reproduced on this card was painted by William Balfour-Ker (1877-1918) and originally appeared as the cover of Life magazine on December 7, 1905. The twenty-one story Flatiron Building had been completed two years earlier, becoming for a time New York's tallest building. Balfour-Ker's image reflects the ambivalence some people felt toward the early skyscrapers.
