On November 3rd, 1953 Robert Wagner was elected NYC Mayor with 1,021,488 votes to 661,410 for Harold Riegelman, and 468,392 for City Council President Rudolph Halley. Under magnification the large black sign in back of image reads "Election Returns / Riegelman, Wager, Halley" but does not yet list a vote count.
