Object Name Poster
Catalog Number 2009.013.0017
Collection Hoboken Transportation Collection
Credit Gift of Dorothy Becker.
Scope & Content Ship Stacks of the Port of New York. Compiled & issued by The Maritime Association of the Port of New York, 80 Broad St., New York, N.Y., 1974. Poster 24" high x 18" wide; fold marks with wear at creases.

Chart printed with the insignias/logos and/or colors seen on funnels or smokestacks for 136 lines; 140 are listed, but 4 are blank black rectangles without a stack. All are titled and numbered with an alphabetical list at the bottom with the key number.

From the Becker family of Hoboken, this is one of three charts they had (see 2009.013.0015 & .0016 for two earlier charts.) Apparently personal interest or a hobby to identify ships that were seen in Hoboken, on the Hudson River or New York Harbor.
