Hudson SS company at left. Hudson Sound? Cory ship to the right?

Tranquil scene, very un-stressed group of ferry passengers. Looks like they're off to fetch the paycheck without having to do any work. Regards, Stein

I think they may have been going over to the Dun Cow to spend their paychecks!!

Hi Blythspirit. That would explain the relaxed attitudes and the small number of men being ferried, yes. Somehow I felt certain it was morning: the light, the funnels smoking and the open hatches, and the - perhaps artificial - haze. - Could be midsummer evening?

Whatever, wonderful atmosphere. Regards, Stein

Looking at the shadow on the bow of the ferry - it must have been evening time in the summer!
regards,
