Historical Views of the Rockaways
The photograph was taken from a boat tied up at Reid’s Dock, on the bay end of Reid Avenue at Rockaway Point. Reid’s Original Point Pavilion, with the three small dormer type windows, has been enlarged into the new Rockaway Point Inn shown in this early 1920s view.
To the left or east of Reid’s was Frieberg’s Pavilion, and both Reid and Frieberg date back to the early 1900s at the point.
The sign on the building to the left of Reid’s looks like oriental letters, and was deliberately obliterated by Reid… who published the postcard.
