My photos of Crane 30 at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard have been approved for public distribution by the Navy. These 4×5 negatives are intended for the Historic American Engineering Record at the Library of Congress. Dating from 1933, it is one of the original “portal gantry cranes” installed during the Great Depression, and used extensively to repair ships during WWII. The crane is no longer in use, although it was safe to climb up and photograph the cab. Eventually, the crane will be dismantled.
