Looking Back — Boardwalks

A panorama of three separate photos printed together shows a layout of connected boardwalks over marshy land around 1900. The boardwalks allowed easier passage among the various houses and businesses but only on foot – roadways for carriages and wagons had yet to be built. The exact location of this area isn’t known.
