HEAVY LIFTING


Things you don't see from the land beside the Mississippi. The first one is right at waterside. No idea what it lifts. That is a barge in the foreground of the second picture. I assume the huge green arm sucks or pumps things in and out of them. It's a working river, not very scenic away from the city center but still interesting.

A different side of things.

There was a huge grain company along the river in Quincy when I lived there and I used to see one of those big "arms" sucking up the grain and loading it onto the barges. I hadn't thought about that in a long time.
