Ye Yacht Yard circa 1920

A very rare photo of Ye Yacht Yard from the 1920's extracted by Lew Corbitt from a frame of a 16mm film taken by A.O. Jennings.
Special thanks to Arthur Jennings for contributing this photo.

Date question: It appears that to the left of the photo it is possible it is the schooner "Mary Elizabeth" a market boat owned by the firm of Chas. Jennings & Son. The Southport market boats ceased operation about 1903-4. The "Mary Elizabeth" was sold in 1905 and taken to Long Island. Therefore the date of 1920's is questionable and not corroborated.
