POINT BREEZE – The post card view seen here was taken in the 1930s at Point Breeze in the town of Carlton. To the left we notice Robert Taylor’s Boat Livery, Bait – Fishing Tackle and Fish Market Shanty.

To the right is Dad Parmelee’s Shanty for boat rental and bait. In the background is the Oak Orchard Harbor. The Parmelee Business was located where the present  boat launch is today just west of the Black North restaurant.

This postcard was sold through the H.P. Hawks Rexall Drug Store in Albion.
