Lolita – Location of the Ferry in Shot 267

The top image is shot 267 from Kubrick’s Lolita. The bottom image is the ferry in question that is captured in that shot. This was unidentified at the time of my original post, or else I'd not have had to go looking for it, my method being to search for old images of ferries in that area. I was fortunate to eventually find the bottom image of a ferry that certainly matched and was identified as the Jamestown Ferry landing at Newport, Rhode Island, now Ferry Wharf. Jamestown Ferry landing appears to have been in operation until the 1960s.
