Ships Were Importing What?, 1872

In the 1870s grain made up a bulk of the imports to Red Hook's piers but a wide variety of other goods from around the world were arriving and being stored at its ports.

Major's Storage Guide (1873) published "Rates of Storage and Labor on imported merchandise deposited in the United States Private Bonded Warehouses at the Port of New York."  The list provides a handle on the cornucopia of imports arriving here.

Before we get to the list, here are:
Some definitions and archaic units of measure:

  • Bonded warehouse: a place were foreign imports can be stored or manipulated without the payment of duty or taxes.  Duty is only due only when the goods are sold domestically.
  • Ceroon: a hide-covered bale or package
  • Dholl: a round skein of yarn, wound together and tied up, about 30 inches long and 5 in diameter, thick at one end and narrow at the other.
  • Frail: a kind of basket, used as a commercial unit of weight for fruit and nuts. Depending on the item, a frail could equal anywhere from 32 to 75 pounds. 
  • HHD: Hogshead:  In the United States, a hogshead is defined to hold 2 barrels, or 63 gallons
  • Puncheon: often reckoned as equal to 70 gallons.
  • Tierce: equal to 1/3 butt or 42 United States gallon. The tierce is identical to the petroleum barrel
