View from the Native Jetty (Netty Jetty) Bridge in Keamari, Karachi, Pakistan - January 2011

Native Jetty Bridge is bridge in Keamari Town of Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan.

 

The modern Port of Karachi began to take shape in 1854, when the main navigation channel was dredged and a mole or causeway was constructed to link the main harbour with the rest of the city, over the Chinna Creek. This was followed by construction of Manora breakwater, Keamari Groyne, the Napier Mole Bridge and the Native Jetty Bridge. The construction of the wharves started in 1882, and by 1914 the East Wharf and the Napier Mole Boat Wharf were complete while 1927 and 1944, the West Wharf, the lighterage berths and the ship-repair berths were constructed between 1927 and 1944.

 

People gather here in the late afternoon and feed dough to the fish in the water below and offal to the Black Kites in the sky.
