Eureka 1906, The Best at Our Command

Eureka 1906

I know people puzzle over the blatant consumption of our natural resources over the last 150 years, but the caption under this photo really explains it well.  Resources were resources.  The best was at our command.  My guess is that people naively thought (as some still do, unfortunately) that there would always be enough to meet our needs.

On another topic, can you imagine two thousand steamships & other vessels coming into our bay each year…? ! ?
