Are there any photo's existing of the procession on which is a clearly view of the funeral car?

I know Mary Lincoln was not in one of the carriages, but was Tad?

I don't remember seeing this engraving before, but Pennsylvania Avenue sure looks loooong in this rendering. Because of that, my guess would be that the large building on the left is Willard's Hotel, which would have been shortly after the procession left the White House.

There's something about the fact that there are so many large buildings and absolutely no indication of the Capitol in the distance that makes me suspicious that this might be a procession in another city larger than D.C.
