Boat Yard, Beach Road.

Handwritten Notes: "Boat Yard Beach Rd. (Now Hale's)"

Closeup of V21804.HTM. Compare to V84102.HTM. "This yard was located where the Mobil Oil Terminal was - not the location of the Hale Shipyard. Note the old cold storage plant is in the background, not the foreground. Also, note the curve in the beach, it is still there between the Corner Service Station and the old site of the Mobil Oil Terminal." [W.R. 1999]
