A little history,
The waterfront has historically always been a place to gather, especially during the summer months for evening strolls before sunset.
It was also from here that passengers from around the lake or from across the country boarded sternwheelers that tied up at the former Nelson City Wharf.
Below is a photo from circa 1905, showing us a view of the Nelson landscape from the Northshore. The S.S. Moyie is moored at the Wharf.
Here is another view of the waterfront from the Northshore in the early 1900's.
