By the mid-1900s, the harbor was choked with trains, shipping docks, an airport, a sewage plant, a dump, a Missile site, heavy industry and storage for ore, grain and petroleum products. Today, it’s changing agai...

What's in the harbor today? Saw the ship docked.
I just returned from a wonderful vacation to Milwaukee. Highlights of my trip were the riverwalk, harbor, and a few brewery tours including the good Lakefront. Why isn't there a bronze statue of Laverne and Shirley in addition to Fonzie? That kind of bugged me. I would have preferred a photo op with the ladies! Even though many locals may not appreciate the representation of Milwaukee by that show, Laverne and Shirley put your fine city on the map for many of us living in the lower U.S. #LaverneandShirley #Milwaukee
