NEWF Wednesday 1/30/13: The Old Waterfront

Neighborhood View of the Day:

A NEWF fan shares this photo of the “old” waterfront taken from Old North Church with the Lincoln Wharf power stack, North End rooftops, a pre-residential Union Wharf and the former top of St. Stephens. I’m not sure if the BullFinch building is there or if that’s the Mariner on the right. (Leave a comment if you know.) Also, check out the size of the ships in the harbor.

  1. The photo of the harbor was taken from the steeple of the Old North Church and I would guess the date is sometime in the early fifties.
    The mariner was then the Quincy Market Cold Storage building and was still in operation. Union Wharf looks intact so I think the picture was taken before the fire which destroyed a lot of it. It was still being used but only for storage. Nice picture.
