READY FOR THE FRUIT SEASON -
SOME INTERESTING FIGURES.
The new pier which Messrs. W. G.
for the accommodation of the largest
steamships trading to the Common-
wealth, is now receiving finishing
touches, and will be completed in time
for the coming fruit season. The pier
and the shed thereon would do credit
to any port. Considering its large
dimensions, and the fact that the old
Dunn-street pier, 460ft. in length, had
to be demolished, the contractors,
who did not start work until May last,
and who lost some 54 days waiting for
piles, have done remarkably well in
completing the work in such a short
time.
The pier is 650ft. long, and 100ft.
wide, and is the longest and the widest
