The port of Odense in Denmark still bears the vestiges of its former life. Cobbled streets, a crane to unload cargo, warehousing. It was once a major port. To expand its operations at the beginning of the nineteenth century 200 people worked for eight years digging out a five-kilometre canal to connect the port to Odense fjord. They used picks and shovels. Later the Odense Steel Shipyard built container ships for the AP Moller-Maersk Group, some of the largest in the world at the time.
