This is the Cappy right after coming ashore. It is nearly ready for the Coast Guard to haul it back to Pine Point. It had come across the Rocky Ledge in the Graveyard. The Graveyard is located between Higgins Beach and Scarborough Beach. Homes at Higgins Beach can be seen in the background and the Cape Elizabeth coastline is at the right of the picture. The people in the picture are not identified.
