Pages of History: Old records for harbor in jeopardy

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, October 1959.

Record-smashing lumber shipments from Crescent Harbor have already passed the 200 million board feet marker for this year and promises to exceed the old record of 218 million board feet set in 1958.

This increase represents a continuation of the amazing growth of the Crescent City harbor, which according to figures compiled by the Del Norte Chamber of Com­merce, increased dramatically in tonnage handled from 1950 through 1958.

On the other hand, oil imports have lagged due to a crippling strike of tug and barge workers in the San Francisco bay area. Local observers have expressed the opinion that even if the strike should end immediately, there is little change of equaling the record of 63,000,000 gallons of oil products imported last year.
