Longshoremen
A stevedore, longshoreman, or dockworker is a waterfront manual laborer who is involved in loading and unloading ships, trucks, trains or airplanes. After the shipping container revolution of the 1950s, the number of dockworkers required declined by over 90%, and the term "stevedore" has increasingly come to mean a stevedoring firm that contracts with a port, shipowner, or charterer to load and unload a vessel.[1][2]Contents1 Etymology 2 Loading and unloading ships 3 By country3.1 Australia 3.2 New Zealand 3.3 United Kingdom 3.4 United States4 In popular culture 5 See also 6 References 7 Further reading 8 External linksEtymology[edit] The word stevedore originated in Portugal

Stadium District, Tacoma, Washington
The Stadium District is a neighborhood of the north end of Tacoma, Washington, USA. It is named after Stadium High School, a historic landmark. The district is located between the affluent North Slope residential neighborhood and the Hilltop neighborhood. The area shares more in common with Tacoma's downtown owing to its urban nature and large population of apartment-dwelling working class residents. The area consists primarily of businesses, apartment & condominium buildings, some with views of Commencement Bay. Like most of downtown Tacoma, the area is gentrifying.[2]A panorama of the eponymous cliffside stadium of Stadium High SchoolReferences[edit]^ Gallacci, Caroline A.

Pierce County, Washington
Pierce County is a county in the U.S. state
U.S. state
of Washington. As of the 2010 Census, the population was 795,225,[1] making it the second-most populous county in Washington behind King County. The county seat and largest city is Tacoma.[2] Formed out of Thurston County on December 22, 1852, by the legislature of Oregon Territory,[3][4] it was named for U.S. President Franklin Pierce. Pierce County is in the Seattle metropolitan area (formally the Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue, WA metropolitan statistical area). Pierce County is notable for being home to Mount Rainier, the tallest mountain and a volcano in the Cascade Range. Its most recent recorded eruption was between 1820 and 1854. There is no imminent risk of eruption, but geologists expect that the volcano will erupt again. If this should happen, parts of Pierce County and the Puyallup Valley would be at risk from lahars, lava, or pyroclastic flows
