Summary

Significance: Crane use at Pearl Harbor is intrinsically tied to the construction of the dry docks and the daily functions of the dry docks and wharfs. The procurement of cranes throughout the history of Pearl Harbor, including the types of cranes and the number of cranes, help to tell the story of Pearl Harbor's early development and its rapid expansion during WWII.
