Southport Harbor circa 1887


(click on image to enlarge)
Southport Harbor
Southport, Connecticut
Description: Photographer: Roderick P Curtis? Written on reverse of photo: "c 1898." Schooners visible are believed local vessels, probably the "Mary Elizabeth" and the "George Edwin." Many details in this picture are similar to those in photos #91 and #92, known to have been taken Oct 1887 by Roderick P Curtis. Originally this was believed a later photograph because this writer mistakenly thought this Banks building was erected in 1889. Simon Banks erected 2 brick buildings; the "1889" Banks building was on Main Street. Further research showed the Harbor Road Banks building date to be c.1876. This may well be an 1887 photo.
