Ocean Avenue in Kennebunkport, looking east.

In the center of this image is the Ocean Bluff Hotel, a large white building with two cupolas. It burned at the turn of the last century.

Now on the site is the Colony Hotel. The boathouse in the foreground on the right is still standing. Note the early dirt roads and wooden fences.
