"Sir Weetman Pearson"
On the middle jetty are monuments to Pearson and Sons, the
EPC contractors on the dockworks, the brave workers, the divers,
and even the huge formed stones from a quarry near Penuela, Veracruz.
"Witnesses of the Future"
"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.
