Inner Swain's Tickle, or The Reach, is the passage of salt water between Swain's Islands and Wesleyville.  Most, if not all, of the buildings pictured are no longer standing.  I worked from an old photo of the wharves in Wesleyville to create this image, and used colours available in the time frame to paint the buildings.
