From the Publisher
The centenary has also occasioned the publication of the first full-length study of the event, The Hudson-Fulton Celebration: New York's River Festival of 1909 and the Making of a Metropolis.
Johnson's book comes alive with 239 photos and illustrations displaying the two-week long Hudson-Fulton Celebration held in 1909 to commemorate the 300th anniversary of Henry Hudson's discovery of the Hudson River and the belated centennial of Robert Fulton's first successful run in 1807 of his steamship Clermont up the river to Albany.
Johnson's attractive book, with its hundreds of photographs and color illustrations, brings the mammoth celebration and the times to life.
