This picture shows Sherman Jameson, the co-owner of the Jameson & Wotton Wharf, standing at the end of the wharf. According to the caption on the photograph, Jameson is in the process of buying lobsters that have been brought to the wharf on the lobster smack the Foster D. One of the first motorized boats in Friendship harbor, the Foster D traveled a regular route to offshore islands and coastal communities to buy lobsters for the Jameson & Wotton Wharf.

The lobster smack, designed by Sherman Jameson and named for his son, had a deep well that was perforated with holes for circulating of water, and it could hold up to 700 pounds of lobsters.
