I believe this is where the laundry stood. It's rather hard to recognize the wrecks of places even if you were familiar with the location before the storm. You almost don't recognize your own home." Also noted by C.S. Baskin, " Building on the right was W.O.W. Hall - now a 2 story concrete parking garage is on this corner - the next building, center of picture was Captain Kennedy's office"
