High Bridge history talk: Dredge Buckets (and more!)

High Bridge-manufactured Taylor-Wharton manganese steel for steam shovel dredges and buckets for ladder dredges dug through the Isthmus of Panama to build the Panama Canal. Similar giant ladder dredges were used mining gold, tin and platinum on the U.S. West Coast and Alaska and the tin mines of Southeast Asia. 

These buckets and dredges will be the topic of a High Bridge Historical Committee Speaker Series talk on Monday evening, August 26 at 7:30 pm at the High Bridge Emergency Squad Building, 95 West Main Street (Route 513), High Bridge, 08829
