Download Great Lakes Shipping Ports & Cargoes (Photo Gallery) epub

by Patrick Lapinski

On average, over 163 million net tons of cargo are moved each year on the Great Lakes in the holds of a vast fleet of steel ships. From the western end of Lake Superior, to the shallow, emerald-colored waters of Lake Erie, ships arrive and depart at all hours amid a landscape of dirt-laden mill buildings, smoke streaked skies, and vast fields of coal and iron ore pellets. The photographs in this book will show you a slice of industrial America rarely seen by the general public. These images, contemporary and historic, will take you to all of the primary loading and unloading ports from Lake Superior to Lake Erie. View first-hand how cargoes are loaded at the grain terminals of Thunder Bay, the ore docks of Minnesota’s north shore, or the sprawling Midwest Energy coal dock in Superior. See where these giant ships and cargoes go “down below” on the infamous Cuyahoga River, the Ford Plant on Detroit’s Rouge River, or inside the heart of the famous U.S. Steel Works in Gary, Indiana.

Excellent pictures, information and great gift
Great book. Very informative. Gave great insite into the workings of the boats.Excellent pictures and information about identification of boats
The book has many excellent photos (many in color) of ports along the "Forth Coast" of the United States. The commentary is knowledgeable and succinct, as to where each Lakes port is, and what it does. This is all very interesting to me and I'm glad I finally got this book, and at an excellent price, too!
