Meiggs' Wharf, Telegraph Landing area, c. 1885
Henry Meiggs, aka "Honest Harry", was an enterprising businessman who in 1853 built a 1600 foot wharf at North Beach, extending from Francisco Street, as a landing area for lumber for his mill. Initially engaged in banking, he saw the potential of this waterfront area, but the City unfortunately expanded in the opposite direction. Meiggs absconded to Peru in 1854 with city records. The wharf was enclosed by the seawall in 1881.
