I stand corrected. A reader more knowledgeable about Hudson history than I informs me that the ORIGINAL name for Route 9G was "Highland Turnpike." The name "Bay Road" came into existence casually over the years and was the official name only during the time between when it ceased being a turnpike and before it became a state highway.
There's another post card (found on THE 12534) of this view without the telephone poles (I think) entitled " A Very Beautiful Spot" - which obviously it was.
An astounding photograph. More, please!- T. O'Connor
