The shrimp docks on the San Sebastian River just south of King Street. The shrimp industry played a major role in St. Augustine's history -- in 1916, the 300 small shrimp boats operating from the city's docks were supported by 32 raw shrimp houses and 10 canneries. Large, wooden Desco shrimp boats manufactured here were used worldwide into the 1980's. The original sign you can see in the post card is now on display at the St. Augustine Lighthouse as part of a display about the city's rich maritime history.
