Smith Park Marina
Another aerial view of the area, this time we gaze down on the vacinity of Smith Park. The old George Banta Company is at the top right of the photo. You can see the Memorial Building in the center with the Isle of Valor directly behind it. Until 2007 when the memorial was completed, the small island had been referred to as "Picnic Island" in some news accounts, though that is the only place I'd ever heard that name. This photo seems to pre-date the construction of the memorial.
