The descriptive text accompanying the illustration reads as follows: “Thousands of Baltimoreans gathered at points of vantage and silently paid tribute of sorrow to the memory of the martyr president. Union Station was the center of greatest interest. Here the train remained for sixteen minutes. A band and drum corps played hymn airs, and a guard of 600 federal employes [sic] lined either side of the track. The sketch is made looking toward Charles street bridge from Maryland avenue” [sic].
