Clarence Spohn has provided this blog with wonderful photographs from Taipei, CCK, and now Kaohsiung.
On one of his visits to the south of the island, Clarence ended up at the Kaohsiung Harbor.
He photographed the harbor ships and some of the fishing boats unloading their catch of fresh seafood.
Few of us have seen Kaohsiung port and less have taken the time to visit the fishing boat docks. .
Here's how it looked Back in the Day, of April-May 1969...
|Fishing boats tied up as far as you can see.|
|Good haul of seafood today.|
|Naval ship of some type. Anyone recognize her.|
|Good view of the harbor. Check the running lights on the mast, and 2 lines of radio antenna.|
|Look at that tanker! Could be hauling just about anything, probably crude oil.|
|What's up on the top of that hill? Maybe a Pagoda or is that a light house?|
|My attention was drawn to the 2 small boats. Do they haul fresh seafood to the markets?|
|Let's get those fish out of the hold.|
|What's in the box, every one's attention seems to be drawn to the box.(Clarence reports the box contains eel.)|
|Sorting fish and seafood.|
