Boston Wharf Co. Industrial Real Estate sign in Fort Point, Boston Massachusetts

The iconic Boston Wharf Co. Industrial Real Estate sign is featured in this dramatic urban night street photographic print shot from the Summer Street Bridge. The sign is one of Boston's most visible icons and a defining feature of the Fort Point Channel / Seaport neighborhood. The sign is atop the office building at 263 Congress Street, Boston, Massachusetts, at the corner of Sleeper Street. 

The Boston Wharf Co. sign provides an illuminated visual gateway into the New England neighborhood and symbolizes Boston's industrial past. The Fort Point Channel Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2004. In addition, the Boston Landmarks Commission officially approved the area as a historic district in 2009.

The sign was erected sometime in the early 1900s. I love the sign's glow against the night sky, with the wet streets reflecting the city lights in this photograph.

Boston never had many large neon signs, and residents are starting to appreciate them as an art form instead of an advertising blight on the cityscape. However, many of the old neon signs have been removed decades before. But, the Boston Wharf Company sign remains, has weathered the times, and continues brightening Boston's skyline.
