Winter 12-1971


Pictured from Goat Island, some of the historic architecture, including Victorian and Colonial, that make up this picturesque coastline view. This view, from 1971, predates much of the development of boutiques, eateries and hotels, which, while creating a crowd of people in a festive, spending mood, did little to preserve the character and history of the city center.
