Oil on canvas from approximately 1905, showing an industrial port where sail and steamships coexist and the changes from the turn of the century can begin to be seen. The technological changes are not only visible on the ships, with sail power being replaced by mechanical propulsion, but also in how the port operates, with steam cranes beginning to replace manual transportation.
