Down on T Wharf: the Boston fisheries as seen through the photographs of Henry D. Fisher
Mystic Seaport Museum, Dec 1, 1982 - Business & Economics - 156 pages
Picturesque T Wharf was long the home of Boston's fishing industry. Henry D. Fisher created a remarkable photographic record of the fishing fleet in Boston Harbor between 1908 and 1920, when Boston was America's largest fish market. This book's 117 photographs, accompanied by an equally vivid text, recreate the fishing vessels and markets of a vanished era. The North American Society for Oceanic History named Down on T Wharf the best book on American maritime history published in 1982.
