Ore Dock

Yo, regarding that picture you reblogged of the Lower Harbor Ore Dock. I was confused because I have no memory of there being a small island NORTH of the existing ore dock. I found the full (very cool) image here (http://www.shorpy.com/files/images/SHORPY_Marquette_Harbor_Panorama.jpg) and you can see that that ore dock is no longer standing, and the existing structure is farther north, with Ripley Rock to its south. HISTORY


Oh dang! I had completely forgotten that there were multiple ore docks in the lower harbor. Thanks for the catch!
