Scarborough anchorage, ca. 1963

The Scarborough anchorage seen from the original Fisherman's Co-operative around 1963. The original pier is to the right, where people had to climb down a ladder to reach their boats. Also shown are the dinghies, skiffs, and punts used to reach the boats in the harbor. The pilings in the center were put in during 1955 by Edward Bayley. Although Bayley had plans for a pier, nothing was built and the pilings were taken up in 2000. At low tide most of the pilings were on dry ground and boats could be hauled up to the parking lot, contained in a wooden cradle.
