1990: Yachts line the seawall

This shot of yachts at the 1990 Monaco Grand Prix aptly depicts the end game of yachts’ migration over the decades as they've moved from out in the harbour to the seawall in the Port of Hercules.

Perhaps what's most striking in this photo is how different security is from today; no gates, no guards and the yachts firmly affixed to the wall rather than floating just off and tendering guests in.

Alain Prost of France drives his Scuderia Ferrari SpA Ferrari 641 Ferrari V12 past the yachts moored stern-to in the harbour during a practice for the 1990 Monaco Grand Prix.
