The pic on the left below shows the north Franklin foreshore in 1995, the one on the right in 2017.  Quite a contrast.  Thanks to Bill Wright (via Ruth Young) for the earlier shot, and 'Max' for the 2017 one.  The newspaper picture that follows, also taken in 1995, confirms the dreadful paucity of boats at that time.  See for the newspaper article from which this picture was taken.  The final picture shows a similar view taken today.
