    This is the Market Wharf also known as the Fiscal Wharf (Muelle Fiscal) at the market. The market and pier were built in 1877. The pier was extended in 1912 as shown in this photo – the extension is the part on the right where the roof changes. The photo was thus taken after 1912. The photo caption is wrong as the American Wharf was one of the railway wharfs which are out of sight to the right of this photo, adjacent to Maranon Beach, at the site of the modern fish market.
