This postcard photo is later than the one above (202). Notice the telephone pole to the left in this view, which is absent in the previous view.
Looking west. On one copy of this post card it reads: "McKeown sisters. Circa 1905."
This is one of my favorite pictures of the Hamlet -- catching, I suppose, my romantic view of what the Hamlet must have been like at the beginning of the 20th century.
Rick Frazier comments on the picture: " I have been told it’s a photo of my grandmother Elsie McKeown and her sister, both of which grew up on Bay Avenue in Brookhaven. Their parents were William and Anna Knies McKeown. I think some of the relatives, Bulls I think, still live in the area, possibly in the same house. I was shown this photo when I was younger and told it was on the cover, or somewhere in, Harpers Magazine early in the last century, but I have lost touch with it.

Probably looking north from the Beaver Dam Road bridge, and likely at low tide. Compare to modern Image ID 170, above, which was taken at high tide.
The seller of this post card when auctioned on Ebay dated it 1924, perhaps from a post mark. I've bid on it, but it is not yet won. (1/25/2005)
