I have a few more pictures if anyone is interested.

The pictures were taken with a Kodak DC 3400 camera. I then copied the data files onto my computer and burned the images onto DVD.

This was some kind of plaque for a competition between the Manhattan Chess Club and a Franklin Chess Club that existed at the time.

this is a closeup of the plaque from the previous picture. Seems that it dated back to 1909.
