I do not know the exact date of these photos, but the guess is circa 1895 - 1900. The "Upper Narragansett Bay, 1896" map (see link below) supports the shape and mouth location of Mill Cove seen in these photos. Special thanks to George Shuster for sending me Photo #57, "Looking South". This photo confirmed that the next in series, #58, that I had was in fact here on Mill Cove.

Interested in how the shoreline has changed over the years?
