This image begins a series featuring San Fransico, California, starting with the marina where the commercial fishing fleet is docked.
The description states:
FISHERMAN’S WHARF — is a “must” for every visitor to San Francisco. This lagoon and its colorful deep sea fishing fleet is nearly surrounded with palatial sea food restaurants and gift shops.
–The waters are not in fact a lagoon, merely a protected anchorage next to the popular tourist restaurants visible in the background. All of the major businesses visible in this picture remain in the same locations today. This image likely dates from the 1960s.
