"The British Contrator, Sir Weetman D. Pearson, presents to then President Porfirio Díaz, the project that cristalizes the modernization of the dock of the artificial port of Veracruz. Witnessed by the Mexican government federal engineer assigned to the project."

This was a magnificent project initiated and coordinated during the administration of Veracruz Mayor Don Domingo Bureau. When construction began he resigned his post as mayor to personally supervise the project.
