Cast Iron Crane in Copenhagen

Cast Iron Crane in Copenhagen

This is a cast iron crane located in the central part of Copenhagen, Denmark. This 100+ years old crane used to lift gods from around the world from ships at the harbor, and to lift Danish gods to the ships distended to sail the seas of the world. Today it stands as a landmark for the maritime and commercial history of Copenhagen. In the background is a Danish warship at a Danish military base.

These great inventions was made possible by the Industrial Revolution.
