One of many staff and residents in a hotel.  I had trouble reading the page at Genealogy.com and couldn't find the page at Ancestry.com, so my extraction is definitely not complete nor necessarily accurate.  If Esther still has three children living, where's Paul?  He would be only 12 years old in 1910.
