A Good Landing - in 1873

Centennial Week brought to the light of day this old water color, which for years hung in the office of the late A.B. Frazee, superintendent of the old Camden & Philadelphia Steamboat Ferry Company. It was painted in 1873 by one Hoagland, a local artist of 60 years ago. Before his death, Frazee gave the picture to I.N. Price, an employee of the company in the old days. Mr. Price, who now lives at 725 Spruce Street, presented the picture to his daughter-in-law, Mrs. Ethel Price, who, in turn, gave it to the Courier for publication.
