Description:
Coloured postcard of a moolit Port Hope harbour. One of the Richelieu and Ontario Navigation steamboats is heavily lit up on the outside of the pier. A tugboat and barge (possibly carrying coal or dredge spoil is inside the pier. A third vessel, possibly a dredge is to the lower left. The original picture was photographed from the top of the pier light in the daytime.
Notes:
Card is in poor condition having been pasted in an album or scrapbook. Postmarked "Port Hope, [] Jul 07" on back. Second indistinct postal marking from Rochester on the front. Publisher is inferred from the JV in a circle with the card number on the front of the card. The particular irony of this picture is that the original postcard shows a daylight scene, more appropriate to the action in the harbour. The colouring was used to change it to a night scene.
