The Fall River Line was a combination steamboat and railroad connection between New York City and Boston that operated between 1847 and 1937. It consisted of a railroad journey between Boston and Fall River, MA where passengers would then board steamboats for the journey thru Narragansett Bay and Long Island Sound to the line's own Hudson River Dock in Manhattan. For many years it was the preferred way to travel between the 2 cities. In 1883, the Pilgrim was launched. The first modern liner of the fleet, she featured a double-hull for increased safety, was 370 feet long, and had sleeping quarters for 1,200 passengers. At the time of its launch it was the largest steamboat in the world. The Pilgrim could make the 176 mile trip between Fall River and New York in about 8.5 hours. From Wikipedia. Scene shows Pilgrim steaming under Brooklyn Bridge which was completed in 1883, so puzzle was probably issued shortly thereafter.
