NEWF Tuesday: Building Lincoln Wharf, Calendar Highlights, New Comments and Remembering Carnevale in the North End

Neighborhood View of the Day:

Here is a photo from 113 years ago, just as Lincoln Wharf’s pilings were being installed. You can also see the Union Wharf granite warehouse in the back which was built in the 1830’s before the Civil War. Thanks to a NEWF fan for sharing this scanned photo.

  1. Love the old picture, that says Lincoln Wharf – but if you look at the picture – and think about – Union Wharf is on the wrong side? You are to our Right not the left…. right?

  2. Commercial Street is on the right and the harbor is on the left. The photographer is taking the picture from the Battery Wharf side. I have another photo from this collection that I’ll post shortly that will make this easier to identify the construction as Lincoln Wharf.
