'Dolphins' - Cranes

On an Islet just off of The Pulp Mill were two cranes or Dolphins, as they were known, tasked with unloading chips out of a 16,000 ton ship from Nova Scotia, Canada. The Wood operatives would be responsible for the unloading of these, and when no ship was there, they would be employed in nearby forests cutting trees. Notice the pipe, 1,500 ft long, that would blow the chips from the islet to the mill. (Logs would be brought to the mill by independent Highland hauliers, bringing up to 80 lorry loads a day. 350 tons of logs were brought by rail every night.) Courtesy of Alec Pyper
