There are a number of similar views in the Local History Room collections, captured by the anonymous eye of an unknown photographer, but this one stood out today.  The sweep of the land, the curves of the river, the angle of railroad bridge, the scattered buildings at the waterside and up on the hill, and one solitary sailboat are now a moment fixed in time here, yet long gone.
