This is the story of Union Wharf: a tale of clipper ships and pirates, of railroads and rum barrels, of rotting piers and renovation. Union Wharf has weathered it all: a fire that nearly demolished the city, a sea battle that killed two captains, the threat of German U-boats, and a waterfront that slowly crumbled into the ocean before it was rescued by an economic boom. Its story is that of a young nation grown into a world power and a city that found its way. Union Wharf was built when that nation was ten years old. Today,entering its third century, it stands as a monument to its founders' vision and to the perserverance of one family in particular in the face of disasters and economic slumps. 128 Pgs Hardcover
