This view looks north up Bay Street towards the Castillo. The house at the left edge of the card is now Harry’s Seafood Bar & Grill. The sea wall shown here is part of the wall built by the Army Corps of Engineers in the 1830s. This stretch of the seawall has been replaced by a four-lane boulevard and new sea wall with promenade, but parts of the 19th century structure can still be found protecting the waterfront south of the Bridge of Lions.
