Schooners loading by wire chute at one of the two chutes in Westport.
Westport was one of the busiest shipping points in Mendocino County from 1860 to 1895. When the wharf on the right was finished, two schooners could lay side by side while being loaded. This port was one of the most dangerous on the entire Pacific Coast and many wrecks occurred here.
