Description

On Old Home Day in 1908, a sailboat loaded with passengers, its mast stepped and a Kingston Yacht Club flag aloft, approaches Delano's Wharf, which is lined with people. Several boys row dories in the waters between the shore and the wharf, while a few women and children perch on rocks on along the beach. The caption printed on the front of the postcard is transcribed below; the postcard bears no message or postmark.
