Description

Albumen print on thin paper of a painting depicting a view north across Centerport Harbor with numbered buildings throughout, most if not all of which were boarding houses with room for certain numbers of guests. Wooded foreground beyond which a road travels horizontally across the paper; two or three residences and associated outbuildings beyond the road lining the bank of the harbor; to far left side the road intersects perpendicularly with a rod traveling due north; carriage traveling south through the intersection; several residences and boarding houses located along the corners of the intersection. Midground looks out into the harbor towards small boats moving across the water, shores on either side lined with residential properties and spotted with ornamental and naturally occurring trees throughout. Tidal mill at the far end of Mill Pond visible in the background, beyond which the harbor and hills fade to the hroizon line; some clouds in sky above. Text written along bottom acts as a key for the numbered structures, only some legible "N1 The Centreport Hotel N2 The Free Bay Cottage…[most of the lettering in white is too washed out in the photograph to read]".
