Centennial Greetings! In our last centennial moment presentation, Jerry Johnston explained the importance of the movement of cargo on port docks, and how the combination of hard working longshoremen paired with advancements in technology has allowed for a more effective and efficient means of transportation. This month, port Community Relations Specialist Andrew Ness talks about the various cranes the port has operated in the last 100 years, and how continued advancements in engineering  have allowed the port to grow and expand. We hope you enjoy this bit of our history!
