  1. This is an interesting picture of T Wharf with Eastern Packet Pier in the background. I would guess the date is the mid 1930’s.
    Notice the floats and long bamboo poles. These are seine fishermen shown repairing their nets. They probably were fishing for mackerel or herring in the outer harbor or Stellwagen Bank.. Dog fish often got caught in the nets and they needed constant maintenance. The old man in the top boat may be setting hooks in a tub trawl. This picture depicts a vanished way of life.
