Description Note card. New Albany, Indiana, pictured in the background of this 1874 print, was described at that time as being "an important and handsomely-situated town." In the foreground is a flat or ark. These arks, propelled with grand sweeps instead of poles, kept out of the steamboat channel, and traded at settlements where steamers did not stop.
