With this blog I try to look and see new details each day anew. So I need to confess I’ve neglected barge names. The barge below–moving paper to the recycling plant is called Stars & Stripes. I thought that strange until it occurred to me that recycling reflects good citizenship, which is akin to patriotism.
I might have overlooked this body of water; I don’t know of it.
And I wonder what the story behind Peter R. Hearne is, given that most of its sister barges bear simply numbers.
Cleopatra had a barge. check out this Cleo figurehead here!! I wonder what name Cleo actually gave to her barge.
And while I’m on barges, can anyone describe the difference between a barge and a scow?
