Historic Neighborhood Photo: The Lost T-Wharf

Photo courtesy of the Boston Public Library, Leslie Jones Collection.

Boats docked at old T-Wharf in May of 1929. T-wharf was attached to Long Wharf’s northern face, creating the shape of a “T.” It served as a center for fish trade in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

In later years, the wharf became home to many artists, and the well-known Blue Ship Tea Room restaurant, until its removal in the 1960’s.

  1. Great photo. The Blue Ship Tearoom featured broiled whale steak. Had my first whale steak there, and had much more in Japan. Guess the days of fine dining are over.
