Title

New York State Hatchery and Fish Ponds, Caledonia NY

Description

Postcard shows the nationally recognized operation created by Seth Green in 1864 and eventually taken over as a state operation in 1875. Despite this source of funding, the hatchery still depended upon publicity--thus the sizable text both on its roof and on the side of building facing road. Printed in Germany by the American News Company, the postcard was created at the behest of John Boorman's Pharmacy for tourist purchases.
