Better than the entire US of A?

Seattle has more than twice as many cranes as any city other than Chicago (which was second with 40) or Los Angeles (which has 36). Portland lost a couple of cranes but still moved up to fourth, with 30. In the last report in January, Chicago, Los Angeles and Denver had been tied for second, with 36 each.

No, they bespoke frame Pianos and Toilets!
Is that a shop which sells pianos AND toilets?

Can we have an update, Ed.

Quite a few new cranes gone up lately.

Thanks.

If correct, another new record. :banana:

Love to get 70!

"They just won't listen!
They keep going on their counting Cranes in Manchester.
I've tried to tell 'em -
We're just Bloody Magpies!"
