Hey Gabriel - the crane I mentioned last night was on the Library of Congress site:
25-Ton Portal Crane Type, Waterfront Crane Track System. The photo citing states this was built in 1942.

According to this document, you are looking for a Portal Crane. Page 14 of that PDF lists all of the Portal cranes, sorted by year. That gives the possibility of eight cranes by three manufacturers, although the first one was builtin 1918 and I consider it less likely. Most of them were 15 tons (capacity), but there was a 25 ton and a 50 ton in the mix. The history of the Portal cranes starts on Page 18. Be interesting to see what there might be in Carto.....

So doing some digging on the web has yielded nothing so far. I am probably using the wrong bad search terms. I will have to try to track something down in Carto at NARA maybe.

In the meantime, here are pics of both cranes in question, if anyone can ID them, I would appreciate it:
