A lively wharf

With so much going on there, a daily stroll down to the wharf was attractive to young people! Some took in the salt air, while others watched the boats, got news of the daily catch or waited for the arrival of people gone on outings. Others were only there to discuss and drink up the lively atmosphere. It was the place to see and be seen!
