Many of the you't realize that Trenton once hosted ocean-going vessels at the Trenton Marine Terminal on Lamberton Street in South Trenton. The above photo shows a huge British cargo vessel being loaded with scrap iron and steel which is en route to Japan. The Marine Terminal is long gone. Over the years, attempts have been made to deepen the Delaware from Philadelphia up to Trenton, but the efforts have been abandoned. It is my assumption that the project was never attempted due to the expense. The deepening would have been a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project.
