View is from above Belknap Point (Glendale), looking northwest. Pig Island is center; Lockes Island to right of center. Timber is "above" Lockes, and Governors is upper left, blending in with background.

Interesting, Smith Cove seems to end about where the Marine Patrol headquarters are now so apparently the inner part of the cove was man made after this photo was taken?

Smith cove gets narrower just past the MP HQ (left, in the image); I believe the height of the trees simply obscures the view of the inner (narrower) part of that cove in this post card.

Smith Cove was dredged for Fays Boat Yard. The sand ended up in Weirs to make the beach

Default O Dig Me A Home...🎼

The dredged portion of FBY is located west of the gas dock area nearest the road. This area was dredged to create a harbor for the Marine Patrol. The MP never used this location, instead they established the facilities where they are now located where Glendale Marine was. ⚓️

I think you'll find on other threads that the eirs channel dredging spoil was used to expand Weirs Beach. Dredging in Smith Cove was done where Gilford YC is now, originally to rebuild Goodhue Boat Yard. After the GBY fire in 1958(?) Goodhue rebuilt onsite with a concrete structure (fireproof). I think, overextended, he (Captain Jack) sold to the state for the new MP HQ and started anew on land he owned in Smith Cove. Fay's expanded around the same time, but not by dredging, moving into the deeper section of the cove for sail boats. Recall, the area between the GBY gas dock, now part of Gilford YC and Tabors, now Glendale YC is shallow and sandy, not suitable for larger boats or marina operations.

Actually Barney, the original business was Goodhue Boat Yard who sold to Marine Patrol and then moved to the building where Glendale Marine was. MP purchase Glendale Marine for more space needed for parking but was a loss to the island people who used that facility for boat storage, rack, etc.

*From the link provided for the map zoomed out a little. Never knew there was a "Winter Harbor" that is a part of "Welch Island" good detective work.

Default lake and mountain views

I think its interesting you can look quickly at most landscape image of the lake and mountains and instantly know its Winnipesaukee.
Only when you think long and hard can you really narrow down exactly where it is on the lake.
Although if someone suggest its an image of most anywhere on the lake its easy for you buy into it for a minute until you have time to think about it.
Hope you guys like this and I will pick another postcard for Sunday
