Merrill's Wharf

Merrill's Wharf is off of Commercial Street (as wharves in Portland tend to be) in the Old Port area. It's an active wharf that's home to marine operations and also the newly renovated Cumberland Cold Storage building which is now home to the law firm Pierce Atwood LLP. Yesterday's lobster boat photos were from the same wharf. Here's some more:

  1. That is different. I was in Pierce Atwood's offices years ago. I remember it as being in a bank building. Could be wrong . . .

  2. I think it is a great spot for the new office. It's kind if a shame to see the waterfront filled with office buildings, but I guess times are changing.

  3. My great Uncle was Harold Merrill and he had a cannery there in the 40's...Is this the same wharf? He was married to Edna Lewis of Portland,Me.
