#53 Wharf at Shibaura 芝浦の岸壁

The land reclamation in Tokyo bay becomes clear when comparing the two images. Only the ferry seen in the photo was docked. Furthermore, the current day Shibaura (芝浦) did not exist in 1932; this image was taken close to the original location in Hinode (日の出). The screenshot below of Shibaura/Hinode on 今昔マップ on the web shows this. Please see #62 Shibaura Pier 芝浦の桟橋 for more information on this area.
