Commercial Dock, Mackerel Cove, Bailey Island, Maine

This image follows on from the previous posting, and concentrates on the larger commercial dock as well as the floating dock for small boats.

H.J. Burrowes Company, Portland, Maine

The description states:

MACKERAL [sic] COVE

Bailey Island, Maine

–It is not clear if the spelling of the name has changed, or, as is more likely, the printer did not know the correct spelling of mackerel. The commercial building at the dock is on an elevated platform both to allow a flat surface for the foundation of the building and to elevate it above extreme tides.

This image likely dates from the 1940s.
