Delaware River Transport in the 80s

This post highlights beautiful black and white photography from the 1980s that documents some of the declining heavy industry along the Delaware River in the city of Philadelphia. The post is short on explanation because that’s not what it’s intended for. But the gorgeous images raise lots of interesting questions about the connection between marine transportation and the economic life of the city and region.
