Description

Excerpt from Harbor Cities of the World: A Collection of Photos of Harbor, Dock and Wharf Plans N the following pages we present pictures of the world's most famous harbor cities. In studying these plans one will notice that invariably the business centers in these cities are grouped around the harbor front. While the immediate waterfront is utilized for ware houses, docks and wharves, the adjoining few blocks are, as a rule, occupied by wholesale business houses. Adjoining these again, the retail business section commences with its tall office buildings, stores, theatres and hotels. This holds true of nearly every harbor city, there being a potent reason for this. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
