Docks At Harbor Road 1880's

(click on image to enlarge)
Docks, Harbor Road, Foot of Main Street-View of River Looking West
Southport, Connecticut
Stereopticon view #31, Pomeroy & Wilson, 275 Main St, Bdgpt. Marked on reverse of card is "#31 View of River, looking West." In Charlotte Lacey's book Historical Story of Southport (page 43) this picture is dated as 1873 and referred to as "one of Miss Merwin's old pictures." (Miss Merwin was the granddaughter of the Jonathan Bulkley who wrote the Bulkley Journals.) Whether this is meant to indicate a stereopticon set which Miss Merwin owned or a separate photo is not known. Whatever the date, this view shows the dock area at the rear of the Jelliff building (now PYC) and the Charles Jennings store, warehouse building.
