Hudson River .Brick Industry, Haverstraw, N.Y. [top]. A tow on Haverstraw Bay. The bay is about four and one-half miles wide at this point [bottom] [front captions]
The front of the card is divided horizontally into two separate images with two separate captions. The top image shows a boat plying the Hudson River with a large hill and brickyards in the distance on the opposite shore. Presumably, this depicts the brickmaking industry in Haverstraw. The bottom image shows a tugboat pulling numerous barges. Piles of brick are visible on the distant riverbank. In between the two horizontal images is a decorative line consisting of stylized bricks interspersed with dots. Printing information: card number (24358) embedded at right in top image.
