Whats up dock?

Apparently repairs after the storm. This article mentions the hurricane of 1906, with other marine history of the area.

Twist and Bend

Lots of tilt and list here. Anyone know what's up with the Sherwin Williams structure?

I see a baker's dozen

At least thirteen accidents waiting to happen.

Unlading List

That's quite a list to the next vessel in line; an effect of unloading maybe?

These photos, esp of Southern ports, are of such superb quality that I regret we seldom know the names of the photographers who sold their photos to the DPC.

[The photographers were generally either the employees or owners of Detroit Publishing. -Dave]

I wonder if that is a single piece of wood that the guy on the right is standing on? Lots of nice lumber there!
