Additional Details:
Dorys line the waterfront near the Newport Pier where fishermen sell their catch taken by set lines. This is one of a few fresh fish markets on the pacific coast where one may buy direct from the fishermen. Newport, known as McFadden's Landing, was once the largest shipping point between San Diego and San Francisco. McFadden had built a pier, also a railroad road to ship lumber to Santa Ana. The present & parking lot at the head of the pier is where the engines switched around after pushing the flat cars onto the pier. The railroad went up through the center of Costa Mesa, and on the Santa Ana.
