Title: The ASEA crane alongside the Moreton Bay.
Description: This illustrates how cargo was handled after the introduction of container ships. The containers are moved on to the vessel by the awesome ASEA gantry crane. A small group of workers can now handle more goods in hours than whole teams of stevedores and warehousemen could have moved in days.
