Do you and anyone else know when sheet pile was developed and came into common usage?
This website says it was developed in 1906: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larssen_sheet_piling

Common usage was likely after WWII , when the cost of labor made wood cribbed retaining walls more expensive that the cost of steel.
