Along the wharf of this small West Coast town sit these old electric coaling cranes. They are in a terrible state of disrepair and reported that if left any longer would begin to pancake on themselves.
Built in the 1900’s and used up until the 1970’s these cranes had been defunct for the past 50 years and without any restoration or maintenance had fallen victim to the weather of this West Coast town. There are plans to move the cranes and restore them but it uncertain if financially feasible. While taking photos of these cranes I spoke to a local who seemed really upset the cranes were being removed and thought it was a total waste of heritage.
