Description

A group of spectators gather near the baseball field on Squirrel Island at the turn of the century.

The building in the background is the Casino, the island community's social center, theater, and dance hall. (The building's name refers to its use as a dance hall, not as a gaming center.) Built in 1887 or 1889, the Casino was destroyed in a fire in 1965.
