An image from Wesley Fishel's photograph collection of three workers watching a cargo shipment being unloaded off a ship. The label on the photograph reads, "At Saigon Port vessels used to tie up to 21 midriver buoys and discharge cargo onto lighters. Since 1969 they have been able to obtain wharfage space and unload directly onto trucks. (TCB-101 Photo Nine, October 1971.)"
October 1971
An image from Wesley Fishel's photograph collection of workers at Saigon Port unloading a shipment with cranes. Five men stand on and around the bales in the photograph. The label on the image reads, "There has been no congestion at Saigon Port since 1968 and the pilferge rate--less than one percent--is among the world's lowest. Here a coastal vessel uses its own cranes to discharge bales. (TCB-101 Photo Eight, October 1971.)"
