    Many people died doing this man’s job. The port at Harper was too small for the big ships that came for the wood back in the 1980s. Men like this one would ride the logs up to the ships, then get into the water to guide them onboard. Many hit their heads and had other fatal accidents.

    Recognising that this was too dangerous, in the late 80s the port was extended with huge rocks brought in from inland and dropped in the sea. You could hear the dynamite blasting from miles away, and Maryland Avenue was littered with rocks that fell off the dump trucks that carried them into town.
