The harbor mouth is seen directly ahead, George’s Island to the right, with Point Pleasant at the extreme right. To the left in the distance is McNabs Island, and the Dartmouth shore can be seen at extreme left.

A broader aerial picture with enough developments happening to date it with some level of certainty. The Bridge is present, the Avenue is undisturbed, Crichton Park is in the process of construction. Maynard’s Lake is looking full of runoff and lighter in color compared to surrounding lakes from the construction of Lakefront Apartments.
