I had the opportunity to visit Gdansk in 1993 and noted that the beautiful corbelled structure on the right of your painting and dating from the days of the Hanseatic league, remains a feature of the waterfront.

Fabulous work Marek, thank you for sharing with us. I see no sailing ships, but methinks there would still be some brass monkeys in trouble there.

The structure on right is preserved oldest harbor crane in Europe. The oldest notes around of half 1600. Energizes by people walking in very large wheels on ground level and rope/chain/cable was going along back wall up to the pick of the roof ant strait to block on front. The first jobs was lifting and mounting masts on ships and later cargo discharged from ships and stored on different levels in side towers. Load was pulled inside through the slot opening on front by hooks.

Thank you for help. The problem is that i am looking for real good information of interior of wheel house inside, a photo perhaps. Plans are good for model making(i do have plans from Halifax) but how actually looks inside of bridge, the equipment arrangement which is possible use as the background of painting not much luck.I may create period image but the real thing, this is it.
