The photograph was probably taken from the Stanley House. The grey shingled building with sagging roof on the front left is Albert Bartlett's sail loft. The building to the left of the horizontally striped building is James Parker's fish shed. The mansard roofs of Ocean House Hotel and Cottage are visible just under the horizon. The photograph shows the Durgain shed and James Parker's Wharf.

This photograph was taken before the Manset shore was filled in. – According to Ralph Warren Stanley (1929-), the White boat hauled up on shore in front of the William Spurling Newman house at 102 Shore Road, Map 17 – Lot 100 – was probably built by Leslie “Les” M. Rice (1883-1966) on Great Cranberry Island for William “Uncle Jimmy” Doane Stanley (1855-1950). She was built as a double ender. Someone bought her and put a square stern on her. Work was slow at Hinckleys for awhile so Bill Dunham (Wilfred Manson Dunham (1918-2001) and Lewis Tapley (Lewis Merton Tapley (1916-1985) bought her and went fishing, though not for long. Work picked up at the Hinckley yard soon afterward. The vessel was then bought by Abner W. Lunt (1908-1975), then she was bought by Luther C. Faulkingham (1901-1993) of Prospect Harbor, where she was the last time Ralph saw her. The wharf building with the false front was the building that Francis “Frank” Thompson Chalmers Sr. (1893-1985), F. Dwight Perkins (1902-1981) and Merton S. Alley (1904-1985) had a car dealership in. Almon Frank Ramsdell Sr’s (1873-1946) garage was there later. Hinckley may have owned the building when this picture was taken. James “Jim” M. Willis (1919-2006) later ran “The Boathouse” there.

According to Nick Voulgaris, author of "Hinckley Yachts: An American Icon" published by Rizzoli in 2014, page 32, "this is one of the earliest photographs of a Hinckley using the now iconic Talaria logo on its hulls (seen on the boat to the far right)." The boat is shown with its number, I-K-277. Talaria Noun: (In Roman mythology) winged sandals as worn by certain gods and goddesses, especially Mercury. Origin: Latin, neuter plural of talaris, from talus "ankle" - “talaria,” Oxford Dictionaries, 2014, Accessed online 09/06/2014; http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/talaria The best known image of Mercury wearing talaria is Winged Mercury, one of four sculptures done by Gian Bologna, born as Jean Boulogne (1529-1608), the most famous of which is in the Bargello National Museum in Florence, Italy.

The Stanley House is visible in the background. The women on the street are shown with shirtwaists and long skirts. "Before the days of summer boarders, Manset, shown here, was the hub of Southwest Harbor. The only post office south of Somesville lay in this corridor, along with the customs house and shipbuilding and fishing operations… Seen here is William Ward's house, right, overlooking his wharf on the shroe, which housed his store and bowling alley. The adjacent wharf is where John L. Stanley operated his ice and fisheries businesses, and Lewis Newman's meat market lies further at the left." - Mount Desert Island - Somesville, Southwest Harbor, and Northeast Harbor by Earle G. Shettleworth Jr. and Lydia B. Vandenbergh - Images of America Series, p. 58 - 2001

The automobile to the right of the vessel is a circa 1948 Jeep CJ (Civilian Jeep) Note the peavey stuck into the ground (above the “O” on the “DETOUR” sign). A peavey is a logging tool with a wooden shaft and metal hook invented in 1857 by blacksmith Joseph Daniel Peavey (1799-1873) of Stillwater, Maine, as a refinement to the cant hook to manhandle logs on logging runs. The Peavey Manufacturing Co. is still located in Maine (Eddington, Maine) and manufactures several variations.
