This crane, the icon of Gdańsk, was built in the 14th century and renovated in 1442-4. It combined the functions of a city gate and port crane and was powered by men working huge treadmills inside. It was capable of lifting up to 2 tons to a height of 27 meters (90 feet) and could also fit masts to ships. It is situated on the Motława River.
We crossed over to the other side of the river just to get this shot as I was so very taken with the crane even from before the first time I saw it.
