I see, thank you, makes sense. In looking at an aerial view www.bing.comWest Soundside Road. I'm assuming that the original warf would have been an extention of the straight part of West Soundside Road. Andthe boardwalk that was built from sound to oceanwas the original/Soundside Road. Do you know where the hotels were located and which ones? I've got pictures of one of them extended over the edge of the water but not sure where. I spoke with the owner of the house on pilings in the waterStinson's Ranchthat was rebuilt after Hurricane Irene. He said at one timethere was a street and two rows of houses in front of him. So I guess the water has encroached on both the sound and ocean side. So perhaps the land isn't even there any more. Any ideas where I might find more soundside pics of this area? I've already canvased OBX History Center. Thank you.
