This summertime scene of sailboats in the distance on the Hudson River was most likely taken in 1922 as it was awarded an honorable mention and published in the monthly camera contest sponsored by Shadowland magazine for the February, 1923 issue. Judges comments included with the reproduction are:  “This is well composed with a pictorial quality”. (p.62)
