Two additional photographs came to light after this exhibit was finished which dramatically show the extreme variation in tide unique to the Bay of Fundy. The righthand photograph shows initial trestlework extending from the Lubec shore at low tide, the water reflecting the calm before tide reversal. The left photo near high tide reveals the water just below the bottom of the trestle's deck.
