Pier 7

Although this pier is relatively new (it was dedicated in October 1990), a Pier 7 has existed at this spot since 1901. The original pier was the oldest structure on the waterfront and was initially used as a terminal for passenger vessels. Later, it was used for cargo storage, and even later (after a 1973 fire), it was used for parking -- and fishing. The pier was damaged in the October 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake and its usefulness was at an end.

Cool perspective! Night shot would work from this view also.
