A different mural this time! This mural featuring an image of the steamboat "Mary Powell" is one of Hudson River Maritime Museum's early artifacts. It measures 12 feet by 5 feet 4 inches and was donated in 1984, shortly after the museum's move to the present location at 50 Rondout Landing. The museum's donor file tells us that this section of the mural was painted in the 1920s and hung in a branch of the Bowery Savings Bank opposite Penn Station in New York City.
