Pine Creek in 1900


(click on images to enlarge)
View at what is now Pine Creek Beach in about 1900 from about where the lifeguard stand is today. At left, the house to the right is #48 Pine Creek Avenue, built in 1819 which still stands. The house and land to the right of the photo was washed away in the Hurricane of 1936, creating the beachfront today which is Pine Creek Beach.

The seagreass patch is the same patch today that grows in front of 10 Pine Creek Avenue and behind the life guard stand.


Here is the restored seagrass patch rebuilt as part of shoreline protection efforts.
The photo above is the same location back in 1900.

Southport Harbor Winter 1890's

(click on image to enlarge)
Southport Harbor looking west on Harbor Road, Meeker Warehouses etc.
Southport, Connecticut
Description: Photographer: Clinton B. Hall? No note found with this glass plate negative. Plate marked on top edge, "View Harbor...2 PM...No 4." Picture seems to have been taken from Jennings dock, Harbor Road, foot of Main Street. It shows water side of Harbor Road, going west, from approximately the foot of Westway Road to the foot of Old South Street. The 3 small buildings on the right side of the picture were the Meeker onion houses, one of which was converted into the house at 825 Harbor Road in the 1950's. The tower in the background was part of the Miss Theodora Bulkley residence, which stood at the northeast corner of Old South and Harbor Road. Buildings visible on the left side of the photo were a barn and house (built by Andrew Bulkley) which stood on the site of 883 Harbor Road until 1902.
