The Hudson River at Bear Mountain, with a family picnicking on the bank at left, was painted about 1850 by George Loring Brown. The funnel stacked locomotive being flagged at right was a herald of change. Railroads stacked up both river banks, bringing wealth to the river towns. Today railroad service is contracting back to just one bank.
