View shows New York Central R. R., Dolgeville R. R., and Mohawk Turnpike on left of Mohawk. (New York State Barge Canal channel in distance), with the line of West Shore R. R. on the right. The south shore highway is a rough mountain road along the south cliff, over 200 feet above river. The Mohawk flows from the deep spot on the right, through a deep rocky channel but little more than 100 feet wide. Moss Island, on the right, and the north shore bank have many wonderful potholes. Central, on the left, 215th milestone from New York on right of tracks.
