That is indeed the Arnold's Bay ferry, but the photo shows her at Barber's Point, Westport, NY. So the label is a bit confusing. There are other images available from the Barber Family and if one goes to that spot you will see clearly from the shoreline that this photograph was taken in NY and not Vermont.
