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.
