Thank you to Parks Masterson of Hopkins-Carter Marine Supply for contributing this great old image. The buildings are located where Bayfront Park was later created by filling in the bay to create the park. Elser's Pier is the large building and has a sign stating "Dancing Every Night" on the west end. There is a Texaco gas station just beyond Elser's and a billboard for Hopkins-Carter Marine Supply in front of Elser's Pier. There is also a sign for Calcutta Bar in the lower right corner.
