Adhesive stains at corners from mounting. The reverse is an advertisement for the Hoboken Ferry with a capsule history and two photos of the ferry plus a quote from British Prime Minister James Ramsey MacDonald about the Manhattan skyline.

Typefaces suggest the 1930s rather than the 1920s. One photo is of a drawing of "team boats" rep
