This is an original 1931 halftone print of a port in Germany. The caption reads, "The loss of Lorraine to France meant the loss of 72% of Germany's iron-ore reserves, reduced her from second iron-ore producer in 1913 to seventh in 1930. This severe blow, however, was not without some compensations. It meant, for one thing, the concentration of steel-making in Rhenish Westphalia, where is good coke and where there are excellent transportation facilities both by rail and by water." The caption also offers explanations of Ruhr operations.
