Title: ASEA crane loading containers on to the Moreton Bay, with the lighter Vindictive in the foreground.
Description: A striking image, showing the way cargo handling has changed. In the background, the huge 45-tonne ASEA crane is loading containers directly on to the container ship. In the foreground, a lighter - used for moving goods around more traditional docks - seems very small in comparison.
