E-FAITH now building a database on historic harbour cranes in Europe

The E-FAITH steering group on historic cranes is now building a web-database on historic harbour cranes in Europe. This database will include general information and documentation about cranes, and, most importantly, a list of cranes used at maritime as well as inland harbours, and on canals and river banks.

Information on the Cranes steering group can be found here.

The first tests of the cranes database are now online here.

May we ask you to send them photos and details on cranes that you know existing in one of the member states of the Council of Europe. Guidelines and a questionnaire which you can use can be downloaded this page.

Don’t hesitate to send them some photographs and information about the location of the cranes – even submissions that are not complete have their value, as they will put them on the agenda.

Many thanks for your collaboration
