Stereo photograph of Fishing Fleet

Another view of the fishing fleet taken by Charles Hubbard and advertised in the Illustrated London News in August 1861. His simple stereo camera required the photographer to take one image and then slide the glass plate across and expose the second - which is why the dog in the foreground and some of the figures have moved.

Could this be Holm before the pier was built?
