Port of Amsterdam, G.H. Knap
Port of Amsterdam gives in word and picture a captivating survey of every aspect closely connected with the Amsterdam port. The text contains much interesting and historical information, but the author also indicates how greatly the port has determined the character of Amsterdam. The book outlines the development and functioning of the port, such as the conversion from general cargo to bulk cargo and interplay of harbour industries; the hydrological aspects of the polderland, the wateradministration, the Amsterdam-Rhine Canal and the harbour mouth of IJmuiden; and the technical facilities as seen in mechanization and container transport.
