Boston has retained the old names of many of the wharves along the waterfront. This is India Wharf, so named because trade with the Indies was a big part of commerce in the 16th and 17th centuries. There is also Long Wharf which reputedly extended a mile out into the harbor in the old days. Now, Long Wharf is a marina for tour boats and pleasure craft of all sorts and India Wharf is hemmed in on the right by the New England Aquarium. The morning that I made these images, I reached the wharf as the sun was just hitting it. I really like how the dolphin statue shines in the sunlight.
