Abstract
A commemorative postcard celebrating the 300th anniversary of the discovery of the Hudson River, with portraits of Henry Hudson and Robert Fulton superimposed over a daytime aerial view of the Hudson River. Prominently featured are a sailing ship (circa 1609) and steamship (circa 1909) which together serve to commemorate the passage of time from discovery to the modern day.
