At the "Narrows"
"Notice the large mound of sand along the shore to the right. A small steam engine with smoke working along the beach. The background shows Sasco Hill with familiar landmarks. This photograph was taken at the "Narrows". At one time the village gave consideration for building a bridge across the harbor at the "Narrows". Photograph is believed to have been taken by, or at the direction of, Richard Demarest Sr., who was associated with the golf course development project of O.G. Jennings." -Arthur Jennings

By the style of the power boats, it looks to be 1940s. I believe the double-ender at the dock
