The president of the United States, William Howard Taft (in dark coat and white yachting cap), can be seen stepping across the landing, after leaving the launch from the presidential yacht Mayflower.

The white Mayflower can be seen offshore, to the right of Stage Island. Notice the clothing trends of the time (especially the woman in the white dress).
