Photo: East Hampton Library’s Long Island Collection.

According to a description of this photo from the East Hampton Library’s Long Island Collection: This image was probably taken at some of the fishing docks in Montauk, as the crowds appear to be fishermen walking down a pier. There are also several ships docked at the pier, each crowded with people. There are two buildings in the background. The ship in the foreground is called "Babe." The date of the photo is unknown.
