Brake's Point

“The Beach” or “Brake’s Point” at Riverhead

A recent evaluation and comparison of the location using cadastral mapping, railway maps
and photographs, along with the confirmation of several older residents of Humbermouth,
leaves little doubt that this is a photograph of Brake’s Point, Riverhead. Although
the cemetery is not visible, the white house is the one referred to in
Meaney’s article Land-marks on the Humber as the
double dwelling which “was erected by
the first settlers of the area”.

Special thanks to Jim Warford, Leslie A. Winsor and Linda White
for their help with this undertaking.
