Fowler's Harbor

Here's a nice, early shot of Fowler's Harbor...I guestimate that it is from 1957, based on other slides in this lot. The harbor is one of those neat little areas that goes unnoticed by most visitors, but I've always loved the level of detail on display. Wonder what's being built behind the buildings (over to the left)? By the looks of the haphazard shape, perhaps it is framing for some eventual rockwork.

There are some men in the harbor (including one in a rowboat) that seem to be investigating something. Maybe they are just tending to the landscaping!

Hey Major- the rock work is probably the tunnel being constructed for the second Indian Village. I will post an image of the tunnel tomorrow to compare. The maintenance guys look like they are checking out some of the clearance on the harbor, maybe to make sure that the Columbia would fit.

I would love to see the image you mentioned. Tunnel for the Indian Village...I don't even know about that! What was the tunnel for?
