This beautiful bird's eye view of the port of Erie, PA was shot by John E. Baker on July 4th. To help you get your bearings, Holland Street is on the left, parallel to State Street on the right. The Bayfront Highway runs between the two. Many of the places that we have visited previously on Old Time Erie are visible in this aerial photograph. Here are a few to get you started:

Oliver Hazard Perry steered the Niagara and the Lawrence through the channel to engage the enemy in the War of 1812:

The Penelec smokestack stands in front of the library:

The old Hotel Ford still stands:

We can't forget the Boston Store:

Or Hamot hospital:

The Perry Square library

The Baldwin Building
