One thing you notice about things from the 19th and early 20th Centuries is that very little was spared in the way of decoration.  Even down to the mundane things like manhole covers they had some type of ornamentation.  This view is of the cabin of the new Hoboken Ferryboat  "BERGEN", published in "Harper's Weekly" January 1889. Many of the artisans of that day were emigrants whose work today would put the cost of such decoration out of reach for most projects.
