Abstract:
View of the seaside edge of the town of Charlotte Amalie (named after the Danish queen Charlotte Amalia). showing how boats and fences meet at the bay's edge. The large white building served as the administrator's office, courthouse, and immigration processing center over the century. The white storage fuel tank was recently removed. The lavish white launch is a U.S. Coast Guard cutter, and dwarfs a ferry boat that services to St. John, or Tortola. At the base of the white building, a white Studebaker cab stands close to the water's edge. Soon, this corner would be a part of the present-day four-lane Veterans Highway. Denmark Hill rises in the background.
