Concentric circles show what is at a 1 and 2 mile radius from the city center (Congress Park).

The reverse shows hotels and boarding houses at Saratoga Spa, indicating which serve travelers. Categories include Hotels (9), "Cure" Diet Available (11), Boarding Houses (3), Hotels Observing Dietary Laws (11, i.e. Jewish dietary laws), Rooming Houses (44).
