Description:
Mounted black and white photograph of Kingston Harbour from the late nineteenth century. The picture predates the large grain elevators that were a feature of the waterfron by the turn of the century. The one steamboat appears in the company of several schooners moored at wharves to the north-east of City Hall (opposite the Shoal Tower). The Penny Bridge can be seen in the background to the right at the entrance to the Rideau Canal.
Notes:
There is another photograph of islands with tall hills in the background mounted back to back with this photograph. It was probably sold as part of a series of images but the photo album has been broken up.
