This scene shows the area known as Centre Street as it looked in 1815.
It has buildings that are noted as important in the city at the time.
From 1750 to the early 1900's the business there was whaling.
William Allen Wall actually painted this watercolor scene in 1884.
It is an interesting view of the street that still exists today.
It has changed quite a bit.
The names of the buildings are in order from top to bottom.
