In the 100 years since this picture was taken, this scene along Granite Street in Pigeon Cove has changed surprisingly little. The wall and columns you see to the right are still there today. The house is also still there, although a garage has been added. There is even still a fire hydrant at about the same spot as the one you see at the center of this picture.
This postcard was published by Rockport Photo Bureau and printed in Germany. The reverse side is postmarked from Pigeon Cove, but the year is difficult to read. It appears to be 1911, which would comport with the fact that this is a pre-1917 postcard.
