7/17 - Historical Perspectives - Buffalo - Brian Wroblewski

A shot of the Erie Basin in Buffalo showing the area when it was still a combination of finger piers and slips along the downtown waterfront. This area is now a huge marina with condos lining the shore. The largest boat to the right is docked at the DL&W Coal Dumper, now the location of the Visiting Ship's Dock along the Buffalo River. The long Breakwall seen in the photo has since been connected to land near the Hatch restaurant forming a protective barrier around the Erie Basin Marina.

a shot of the Buffalo River from the late 1940's or early 50's looking down on Turning Basin # 2 between the Cargill 'S' and Concrete Central elevators. You can see 35 different boats in the photo practically choking every slip, pier, and dock throughout this section of the harbor.
