|BERNSTEIN'S FISH GROTTO
For many years, the sidewalk on Powell Street was partly blocked by the bow of a fishing boat! This was the unusual entrance to Bernstein's Fish Grotto. The interior of this famous restaurant was also decorated to resemble a ship.
The building still stands, now housing a shoe store. The yellow outline indicates the same area shown on the old postcard (at left).
