The description states:

1616–FISHING FLEET, SAN FRANCISCO,  CALIF.

San Francisco has a large commercial fishing fleet which makes Fisherman’s Wharf its home harbor. Here the bright painted boats and sun-browned fishermen are reminiscent of an Old World Port.

This area around Fisherman’s Wharf has remained much the same over the decades, as evidenced by the continuing presence of both the restaurants visible in the background. This picture appears to be taken from the windows of the Castagnola’s Restaurant.

This image likely dates from the 1950s.
