The sign out front read:

Old Fisherman's Wharf
Monterey's earliest pier of stone built in 1846 gave way
to a commercial fishing wharf in the early 1900s when
Monterey's multi-million dollar fishing industry was born.
Despite many changes the wharf today retains the tone and
flavor of the past - - - a monument to the fishing industry
and the fisherman who braved the wind and sea.

Some of the buildings on the wharf were huge. Much larger than expected for a humble wharf.
