This is a picture of Doctor’s Island as viewed from the bridge, taken years later, with the trees grown up and after the beaches had perhaps eroded away. Doctor’s Island can be seen upstream in the middle of the river. The photo has been edited to roughly illustrate where the sandy beaches were on both sides of the river, with the old concrete abutment in the middle. It was safe to swim at the beach on the left. It was not safe to swim at the beach on the right.
