The St. Thomas waterfront has always been the hub of activity with the landing of Tortola boats and produce. ~ 1948

Since the early 1900s, this wharf is where all the produce and products sent from the Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico entered.
Livestock, fish, fruits, vegetables and charcoal among many other items were the life force of the local economy.
Today, the waterfront is still busy with the trading and exchanging of goods from other Caribbean islands.
