King George Dock, Hull
The Port of Hull is a port at the confluence of the River Hull and the Humber Estuary in Kingston upon Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, England. Seaborne trade at the port can be traced to at least the 13th century, originally conducted mainly at the outfall of the River Hull, known as The Haven, or later as the Old Harbour. In 1773, the Hull Dock Company was formed and Hull's first dock built, on land formerly occupied by Hull town walls; in the next half century a ring of docks were built around the old down on the site of the former fortifications, known as the Town Docks – the first, The Dock (1778), (or The Old Dock, known as Queen's Dock after 1855), Humber Dock (1809), and Junction Dock (1829) – an extension, Railway Dock (1846) was opened to serve the newly built Hull and Selby Railway. The first dock east of the river, Victoria Dock, opened in 1850

MV European Causeway
In modern usage, a causeway is a road or railway on top of an embankment usually across a broad body of water or wetland.Contents1 Etymology 2 Engineering 3 Examples3.1 Specific causeways around the world4 Precautions 5 Gallery 6 See also 7 ReferencesEtymology[edit] When first used, the word appeared in a form such as "causey way" making clear its derivation from the earlier form "causey". This word seems to have come from the same source by two different routes. It derives ultimately, from the Latin for heel, calx, and most likely comes from the trampling technique to consolidate earthworks. Originally, the construction of a causeway utilised earth that had been trodden upon to compact and harden it as much as possible, one layer at a time, often by slaves or flocks of sheep. Today, this work is done by machines
