View of Beach Road from U.S. Marine Hospital

Handwritten Notes: "From U.S. Marine Hospital / Large black building is Harry Peakes' cold storage plant. Ice also was made here. Building with two stacks is the Vineyard Lighting plant. Long building back of flag pole is electric car barn."

(What is the story behind that land bridge from the bottom of Skiff Ave. to Beach Road?) "Very interesting. Note causeway/bridge combination and the size of Ferryboat Island, also see V81503." [WHR 1999]
