Weekly Photo: Summer Fun

Our last photo was of an ice truck on Federal Street (which no one guessed).

Here is another photo to give you a last taste of summer fun in bygone days, courtesy of Abraham Schechter, who runs the Portland Public Library's Portland Room. This time our photo is a waterfront photo, taken in 1938. I'm sure our modern, liability-lawsuit-happy society couldn't abide such fun nowadays, more's the pity. Click on the photo for a larger version to inspect details. See any familiar faces? You never know! Does anyone know where this photo view is from? Here's a hint that will give it all away -- it was taken from a Portland beach.
