Kevin Doyle on the Old Stone Dock

"If you talk to kids in Falmouth today they'll tell you that they learned to swim in the Old Stone Dock, and most of them don't even know that it was there."

Kevin Doyle, former president of the Old Stone Dock Association, discusses this Falmouth landmark and its once-vital role in Falmouth's sea trade. This oral history interview was conducted by Barbara Kanellopoulos on March 3, 2020, at Falmouth Community Television.
