The anchor on display here is from the coastal steamer Gipsy sunk off what is now known as Cannery Row on September 27, 1905. At night a substitute Captain mistook a red construction warning lantern at the foot of Hoffman Ave. in New Monterey for the lantern at the end of the steamer wharf in Monterey harbor. The Gipsy ran aground.
