Farewell to the Copra Crane of Islais Creek

Big, beautiful, rusty, decrepit… the Copra Crane was all of these things. It used to transfer cocoanut meat imported from the Philippines onto ships. More photos here and on Flickr.

Big crane assists in the demolition of little crane. You can read about the history of the Copra Crane here.

Ah, Copra Crane, we hardly knew ye. Rest you well.

Edit: THE COPRA CRANE LIVES!!!! HUZZAH!!!!
