This photo was taken by Jeffrey George the Public Dock during the winter of 1967-68. It's amazing how much this area has been built up with the newer Dobbin's Landing and Bicentennial Tower replacing this old antenna-like metal contraption on the dock. Local pranksters used to steal the 'L' from the old Public Dock sign, much to the embarrassment of the local authorities...or maybe this is another one of those Eerie myths?
"Several cars went over the Dock, some accidentally and several on purpose!" said Beverly M.
At any rate, it looks like it was a mighty cold day when this picture was snapped.
Very little changed from 1967 to 1985 when this photo was taken at the Erie Public Dock.
