These photos were taken in late 1975, and are reproduced here from their original snapshots. The subject is a project by the U.S. Corps of Engineers, dredging the harbor in Huron, Ohio. My late husband took most of the photos. I apologize for the sketchy information…I can not locate the newspaper articles that I wrote at the time.
The project illustrates the harbor project, which involved a massive operation of dredging mud and silt from the harbor area of Lake Erie within a mile or so from shore, and deposited within the vast structure the Corps of Engineers constructed of stone pilings and steel.
The result, over a period of perhaps a decade, was a city park…a mile out into Lake Erie from Huron.
The 12 photos that I have included were taken at various points along the pier. looking back to the city, or to show the progress of the project at that time.
I am posting these pictures at this time at the suggestion of one of my friend bloggers, who is interested in land-reclamation projects.
I have also learned that the U.S.Corps of Engineers has applied for a permit to again dredge the harbor. This time though the dredgings will be redistributed further out in Lake Erie. (According to information obtained online.)
The Crowd gathers on the shore of Lake Erie. It is January 1, 2016, the occasion of the annual Arctic Plunge, to benefit Christ the King Church’s (of North Olmsted)project for preparing and serving hot meals for homeless Clevelanders. Celebrated by brave souls who leap into icy waters. It is Ohio. It is cold. They are drawing lots to see who has to go first…(not really…) 🙂
