Black Point Cove

Hello, I'm trying to get some detailed information on Black Point Cove around the time of the 1906 earthquake. It's my understanding that the beach was in disrepair and there was a lot of pollution from the factories there, and also that in 1904 or 1905 someone had proposed improving the area in a city plan. What I can't nail down is the following information:

-Were the factories still in production in 1906?
-Was the water still so badly polluted that swimming wasn't permitted?
-Were there any residencies there, or was it strictly factories?
-Was it a crowded area, or largely abandoned? What I mean is, was there really any beach at all, or was it all buried under factories and houses and such?

I would appreciate it a great deal if anyone could answer these questions for me. Thanks a lot! =)
