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?

Kees, this photo is from the Library of Congress. The caption reads
"The funeral car that conveyed the remains of President Lincoln from the Executive Mansion to the Capitol, April 19th 1865"

Thanks Anita. Do you (or someone else) know if Tad was with RTL during the procession over Pennsylvania Ave.?

Thanks Susan! So, it's Broadway (in Dutch "Brede weg", when it was Nieuw Amsterdam / New Amsterdam). I already suspected it was not Pennsylvania Ave., because I did not see the dome of the Capitol and because the funeral car looked a lot larger than the one used in DC. Thanks again.
