The Port of Houston (Images of America)
Mark Lardas, "The Port of Houston (Images of America)"
English | ISBN: 1467130761 | 2013 | EPUB | 128 pages | 52 MB


To reach the Port of Houstons Turning Basin, a ship must travel 50 miles along a narrow and twisting channel that passes through Galveston Bay, the San Jacinto River, and Buffalo Bayou. Despite this improbable location, Houston has the worlds largest landlocked port. Measured by annual tonnage shipped, the Port of Houston is the second-largest port in the United States. Its docks, wharves, and facilities cover more than 25 miles. The port starts its second century as a seaport in 2014. Its transformation from a crowded river port into an industrial giant is fascinating. It is a tale of technology, geography, politics, hard work, and Texas bragmixed with a little luck.
