Catskill and Albany Steam Boat Company certificate circa 1885 (New York)
Very nice stock with a great early steamship vignette. Unissued and not cancelled. Circa 1885 from issued examples. Dated 188_.
Incorporated 1877 but reorganized 1885 in New York, the business had offices in Hudson NY. and operated steamships on the Hudson River and Catskill Creek for the cities of Catskill, Hudson, and Albany. Although doing business through at least 1910, the railroads were more cost effective and diminished the riverboat enterprise.
