"This photo is rare and historically priceless. In the background through the trees you can see part of the old mansion that stood at the corner of Harbor Road and Old South Road. I believe that it had a large and imposing tower. The automobiles along Harbor Road suggest the photo is WW I vintage".
-Arthur Jennings
Note: canoe and tub races; people at the dock getting in their tubs.
Also the old BC&MMR on Harbor Road.
The Annual July 4th Tub Racing and Watersports, photo circa 1917-1919.
Photograph property and courtesy of Arthur Jennings Collection.
Special thanks to Arthur Jennings for sharing this incredible image from the past.
