• Plan of the Arctic Coal Company's dock on Advent Bay. The dock was enhanced and expanded numerous times since its initial design in 1906. Note the piles driven off the end of the dock to expand its size and deepen its berthing area. The company's largest ship, the Kwasind, often touched the ground off this dock.
