Birds-eye view of some of the dockage, postcard (1908).jpg

Description

Manhattan Street is in the foreground. Just beyond is some of that famous lumber (Dodge & Bliss and J. W Scribner are two firms who stacked it here), and the swing bridge connecting to North Tonawanda to Tonawanda's "Goose Island." The little buildings at mid-left appear to be the bordellos and saloons that lined Tonawanda Street; the larger structures to the right are the Tonawanda Board and Paper Co.; on the far right of the postcard is the southern tip of Tonawanda Island.
