Port of Jacksonville 1960s


Port of Jacksonville (29 k)


Workers at the Port of Jacksonville unload a shipment of tractors and baling wire into open gondola rail cars in the 1960s. Some 400 years earlier, Jean Ribault and his French Huguenots crossed a shallow sand bar into what would become the St. Johns River. Today, Jacksonville's port is the fourteenth largest in the nation in shipping and volume.
