The Hudson at Peekskill
New York: Currier & Ives, nd (c. 1860]. Hand-colored lithograph. Small folio. Framed. Image size (including text): 9 x 12 7/8", sight. Bird's - eye maple with gold liner, French mat. 20 1/4 x 23 7/8"
Handsome view of Peekskill Harbor, viewed from a road above.
There are several factories in the foreground. A dayliner steamer and full masted ships & sloops sail the river, while several groups of pedestrians stroll the high road above. A horse and carriage are heading down the hill. This view was probably drawn and lithographed by Fanny Palmer. Throughout the 19th century, places along the Hudson River were favorite destinations for New York City dwellers.
