Looking south along the ruined waterfront. The prospect is from the Front Street (First Ave.) block between Seneca and University Streets. The large ruins left-of-center is the remains of a cracker factory. The foundation at the bottom right corner is not a ruin, but rather new. It was an important fire-fighter – blocking the northerly advance of the fire along the waterfront. It is the beginning construction on the Arlington Hotel, which was first name the Gilmore Bldg, and last the Bay Building and now part of Harbor Steps.
