First the wide version of Peterson & Brothers ca. 1877 look north up the waterfront from the back window (or porch) of their photography studio at the foot of Cherry Street. No the shipwrecked Winward resting off shore (of Columbia Street) for her eventual internment beneath the fill and pavement of Western Avenue and no long gone stone Society Candies factory, AKA Colman Building Annex. The more relevant part is upper rigth where the Pike Street Coal Wharf (and bunkers) reach shore and ascend it with a trestle/hill climb to carry the coal cars to the trestle filled with eastside coal and then back empty for more. The next subject shows this part of the Peterson subject in detail.
