Here's an article written about 20 years ago about the wharf and I think it captures what you may want to know about it. I took this shot to practice depth of field photography. I'm not sure I captured much but it was a lot of fun and a really pleasant day. If you're in Santa Cruz drop by the Municipal Wharf. It's quite a structure. Plans are in the work to remodel parts of it at a cost of $135M. Should look even better after the work is finished.
