History in Port: A History of the Port of Tel Aviv
[Document photo from 1936 which states:]
Tel Aviv PO Box 194
Tel Aviv 26.4.36
In honor of the exhibition arrangements
The good and the good of the exhibition require that they do a pier on the seafront near the exhibition to dismantle and bring in and take out all the goods and goods for the exhibition and that the port of Jaffa will not be needed for this. You must make every effort to address this and you will have the blessing of the community that is in danger of traveling to the port of Jaffa and it will also be a reward to those who poured our imagination.
With feelings of respect and sorrow for the state of our people [signature: Shimon Velikovsky]

"... no technical difficulty, no financial difficulty, no delay and political obstacle will move us from Jewish origin to the sea ..."
(David Ben Gurion)
In 1936, the first Hebrew port, was built on the Tel Aviv coast, along the Yarkon banks and adjacent to the "Levant Fair". The location of the port was chosen because of the width of the beach, its proximity to the Yarkon estuary and the urban road system.
Its establishment was accompanied by excitement among the Jewish community in the country.
