Art - Upper Dock Rubbings
     

     
   
The bucket that allowed a hulett to unload a Great Lakes iron ore boat was controlled by an operator who rode just above the bucket in a small cab in the vertical leg. In all the drawings on this page the bucket at the bottom of the leg is open. In many of the drawings the rotate ring at the top of the leg also makes an appearance. Republic Steel’s Upper Dock had two huletts, and so two legs; the Lower Dock had three. When they were in simultaneous motion it was as if they were dancing.
