Description

This view is taken from near the entrance to the inner harbor at Blue Hill at a point near the current Yacht Club and shows a steam-powered vessel as well as a three-masted schooner in the harbor. The Cove takes its name from the granite that was mined along the eastern shore of Blue Hill Bay and shipped out to points south from Blue Hill Harbor.
