The Old Slip piers along the East River, just below the end of Wall Street, used to be known as the Banana Docks for its frequent fruit shipments from around the world, including ships containing hundreds of bushels of bananas.

These images were obtained from the Library of Congress and are in the Public Domain. More information, as well high-resolution scans of the original glass plates, can be found here and here.
