You can find a historic panel about Roosevelt’s visit included as part of the HarborWalk Fisherman’s Wharf display. I’m posting this in tribute to Manny Carrancho. The photographs and history shared by Manny Carrancho (1923-2017), Ken Joyce and their family for the Fisherman’s Wharf exhibit make the FDR plaque incredible. The 2015 photograph above shows the beautiful Carrancho family at Fisherman Wharf by the historic plaque vastly improved by his photos, knowledge and stories.

Much thanks to Frank Ciolino who brought down a bunch of old photos of Gloucester from roughly 1980.
Maybe someone could identify the building that is to the left of Captain’s Courageous in the photo. I’m guessing it was the old Gloucester Grocery but I’m not sure. There is an alleyway that provides public access there now. In the post above this one, the Lat 43 sign is located on the left corner of the Captain Courageous building in this photo.
The Fisherman’s Wharf Building has been replaced after a fire a few years back with a corrugated steel building.
