On this day (July 28) in 1943, Bigge hauled ship sections from Independent Iron Works to Kaiser Shipyard in Richmond, CA. More than 747 vessels were built here in the 4 Kaiser Shipyards during World War II. Kaiser Shipyards shut down at the end of the war.



On this day (September 28) in 1939 Bigge hauled equipment for the Avon Refinery located in Avon, California. The refinery was first built in 1913 and has continuously expanded since. It is now knows as the Golden Eagle refinery and is owned by Tesoro Petroleum Co. The refinery refines oil into gasoline and other petroleum based products, and has a crude oil capacity of 166,000 barrels per day. It is the fourth largest refinery in California.




Transportation of Gun Tube No. 87 to Battery Townsley on August 28, 1939



On this day (October 22) in 1938 Bigge hauled the barrels of two 16-in. coast defense guns, weighing 150 ton apiece, across the mountains to Fort Cronkite. The moving of these guns was one of the heaviest truck operations ever performed in the San Francisco Bay area.

Second last photo on the Hume.

This would have been widening as duplication didn't happen until well into the 2000's.

Additionally The Hume is in the South East of New South Wales.

Otherwise accurate :unsure: :unsure:
