Portland's Lost Waterfront

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/portland-s-lost-waterfront-...
Today, Portland, Oregon, is a city of majestic bridges crisscrossing the deep swath of the Willamette River. A century ago, riverboat pilots would have witnessed a flurry of stevedores and longshoremen hurrying along the wharves. Situated as the terminus of sea lanes and railroads, with easy access to the wheat fields, sawmills and dairies of the Willamette Valley, Portland quickly became a rich and powerful seaport. As the city changed, so too did the role of the sailor-once bartered by shanghai masters, later elevated to well-paid and respected mariner. Drawing on primary source material, previously unpublished photographs and thirty-three years of waterfront work, local author Barney Blalock recalls the city's vanished waterfront in these tales of sea dogs, salty days and the river's tides.

Trials of a Calm Waterfront

I Cover the Waterfront

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/i-cover-the-waterfront...
Distinctive, original, fresh in in tone and manner, with a quaint whimsicality of feeling and expression."-The New York TimesLife on the Western waterfront has always fascinated Max Miller, a special reporter for the San Diego Sun. Embraced by all the waterfront folk, he has joined them on their cruises, has learned the mystery of their crafts, and knows them like brothers. Max himself has become a part of the waterfront. Not a fishing boat ties up to the wharf without Max Miller getting the story. Not a submarine comes in nor an airplane soars out over the water without Max Miller's being invited to go. He is one of the first men to climb up the ladder of the Pacific lines, especially when celebrities are aboard.A combination of newspaper reporter, philosopher, and poet, the author writes his charming sketches in his studio" upstairs in the tugboat office, where he can look out over his domain. But reporting is not simply a job with Max Miller; it is the greatest pleasure of his life. He delights in setting down his impressions of the Western shore, where life is a constant flux and reflux, seasonal, immutable, and yet ever exciting-the departure of the sardine fleet, the hunt for elephant seals for the zoo, the sailing of the California fruit liners.I Cover the Waterfront was first published in the early 1930s and has since gone on to become a classic. It is as memorable for its unique stories as it is for its individual style-so keenly sensitive to the personalities of men and to the romantic environment of the harbor and deep-sea life.

Wobblies on the Waterfront

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/wobblies-on-the-waterfront...
During the 1910s and 1920s, the Philadelphia waterfront was home to the most durable interracial, multiethnic union seen in the United States prior to the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) era. For much of its time, Local 8's majority was African American and included immigrants from Eastern Europe as well as many Irish Americans. In this important study, Peter Cole examines how Local 8, affiliated with the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), accomplished what no other did at the time. He also shows how race was central not only to the rise but also to the decline of Local 8, as increasing racial tensions were manipulated by employers and federal agents bent on the union's destruction.

Murder on the Waterfront

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/murder-on-the-waterfront-3...
Maggie Pennyworth, a homeless woman, walks along the 1910 Hoboken waterfront now cast in darkness. Seeing the shape of a bundle under the pier, she kicks it, hoping it's money. Instead, it's Fred Throckmorton, a recently murdered business man whose disappearance is front-page news. She runs to a trusted resident of the docks, Mike Chambers, who looks out for the less fortunate. However, Chambers is not his real identity. A man with a great deal of clout and the ability to live in the shadows has long arms influencing more than just the docks. Digging into the details of Throckmorton's death proves more dangerous than expected. An unlikely friend, Jerry Murphy, gets involved, and there are those who would like Chambers out of the way-permanently. Jerry and his family have an impact on Chambers, causing him to begin questioning where his loyalties lie: the job or those he loves.
