"The Port"

This landmark sight, easily seen driving on Highway 99, is one of several giant cranes at the Port of Seattle. These cranes unload incredible number of shipping containers. Created in 1911, the Port’s “Terminal 30” opened in 1914, and gave way to other later piers, evolving from a grain and fish terminal to the shipping port we know today. More than two million containers cross the Port’s docks each year.
