Excerpts from the entry on page 347: The Coaching Parade
"Of all the bright scenes one may see on Fifth Avenue, none is more picturesque than the start of the Coaching Club parade. A dozen or more coaches are drawn up in line before the Hotel Brunswick. Around the entrances to the building move the members, the men in white high hats and long driving coats, with flowers in the button-holes, the women in elaborate toilets of light color and texture, adorned with massive, brilliant corsage bouquets. Club men of horsy proclivities stand about to criticise the horses and trappings. These are of the finest kind, for the members indulge in generous rivalry in these matters, ... Club men who care less for horses than for humanity are out in force to study the beauty of the ladies."
