Riverside Park was located at the end of the Berlin and Bridgeport Railway line, and was touted as Berlin's playground. The large building behind the streetcars, located at the corner of King St. West and Foundry (now Ontario) Streets was home to the Berlin Business College and the offices of the Millar and Simms legal offices (which occupied the second floor of the building). William D. Best was a photographer in Berlin from 1903 to 1907. The image is very faded and mounted on a black matboard with worn edges.
