Big Lucas in the 21st Century
With the introduction of the big cranes to the Port of Toledo in 1962, the Port of Toledo really opened up the world. Big Lucas and Little Lucas were joined by Muddie and Spike in early 2010. Although these two new cranes provide more mobility, they still haven’t put Big Lucas out of a job yet. Seen here six months after the introduction of his new little brothers, Big Lucas helps with the cargo from a saltie tied up at Midwest Terminals.
