Maysville Ferry Boat Postcard

Postcard depicting the Maysville Kentucky ferry boat (no longer in operation) that carried passengers from Maysville to Aberdeen across the Ohio River. The first ferry in Maysville was operated by Benjamin Sutton in 1794. The place where the ferry landed on the Kentucky side became known as Sutton's Landing and Sutton Street downtown is also named after him.
