1905 postcard

Money Island is one of the Thimble Islands off Stony Creek, a section of Branford, Connecticut. It is named after a legend that Captain Kidd buried his treasure there. The island, 12 acres (49,000 m²) in size, bears an entire village of 32 houses. At this time, none of the houses are occupied year-round.
