Harris Edmond

эстакада Гарриса-1

Harris Edmond was an engineer and industrialist. Period of activity in the port of Odesa - 1865-1917. The most famous structures of Harris is port railway overpass (1872), port warehouses (Red warehouses, 1890s).

 

Railway overpass in the port of Odesa was built after the opening of the Quarantine rail branch. 4-kilometers road for its time was an extraordinary engineering construction.

 

In 1902 by the order of Russian government Harris drafted a full-scale modernization of the port of Odesa. The project featured up-to-date elevators and anchorages. provisional expenses were extremely huge and totaled 15.5 million rubles. Obviously, this was the reason that construction has never begun.

 

A fire in June 1905 destroyed the most outstanding works of Harris, namely overpass and warehouses.

 

Burned to the ground overpass was restored by the project of Harris again.

 

The overpass finally died in 1920 (lit was used for wood in cold and hungry winter.)

 

Warehouses are still in use at the port. After 2005 by the order of the General Manager of the port N.Pavlyuk Repair and Building Departmnet of the port conducts the restoration of this monument of industrial architecture of the 19th century.
