Redwood Creek Turning Basin, 1892.

The First Courthouse

Redwood Creek Turning Basin, 1892.
Redwood City developed rapidly due to the discovery of a deep-water channel that extended off of San Francisco Bay. Settlers established a series of wharves for shipping lumber and other products along what became known as "Redwood Creek." This photo was taken approximately from what is now the intersection of Broadway and Wharf streets, looking toward the entrance to the Marshall Street Parking Garage.
