Foggy Day in Spanishtown

A foggy, drizzly day in Spanishtown.

In the latter part of the 19th century (1870s) Half Moon Bay was known as Spanishtown because there were so many Spanish-speaking people living in the tiny community–there’s even a Spanishtown Historical Society which displays the town’s early history housed in a two=cell jail on Johnston Street (around the corner from Main Street).
