Below are PDF files of the interpretive panels that were on the 1895 lumber schooner C. A. Thayer. Thayer left the pier in 2003 and spent the next four years at a shipyard in Alameda, California undergoing a massive rehabilitation. The panels were removed in preparation for that project and will eventually be reinstalled on the vessel. Thayer returned to Hyde Street Pier in 2007 where work continues on the deckhouse.

The PDFs range in size from 200KB to 1MB and are best read from top to bottom.
