Twenty four hours does include more darkness now than light, so here were: Algoma Transport at the dock in Port Colborne, Algoma Hansa, Algoeast, Cedarglen, Petite Forte, Peter B. Cresswell, Fortunagracht, and . . . now northbound, Algoma Transport. And there’s no better place to watch all night long than from the Inn at Lock 7.
The 1823 culvert under the canal is a spectacle. Hope you enjoyed it from below and above here.
All photos by Will Van Dorp, who didn’t need a drone camera for these.
Here were the first and second in this series. And I could renumber and make this #4, since I posted a screen grab of tug in Carlito’s Way here . . . last shot there . . . which turned out to be Dorothy Elizabeth. Anyhow, the “grab” is somewhat blurry, but any guesses about the name of the movie or info on the boat?
The figure near the stern here is actually Robert DeNiro . . .
And the movie is . . . here.
Know this superstructure? Guess the date?
Know other boats on this photo? Actually I don’t although I see some Eklof colors.
Here’s Mary Turecamo as she appears today, i think. I took this photo in November 2009.
And frequent contributor Ashley Hutto send this along. Can you identify the location?
And finally, from Walter, a frequent commenter here, a novel view of Alice discharging aggregates.
These photos come thanks to bowsprite, Russell, Ashley, and Walter. Thanks very much.
Answers to the questions are: Mary Turecamo photos were taken during the 1986 centennial of the Statue of Liberty. And Ashley took the his photo over near the Goethals Bridge.
When I noticed someone standing on a bridge in this rural area, I suspected it might be Bob, a person I’d never met but . . . click here to see how many posts he’s already contributed to.
Anyhow, I was not surprised when later I received the following photos…
… all taken between Clyde and Lyons by Robert Stopper.
Thank, Bob, and great to meet you.
Johnston Brothers of Ferrysburg, MI, built Urger in 1901. The boat below–Ronald J. Dahlke, was built two years later as Bonita. A few days ago, the two boats passed each other in Lyons . . . or to be more accurate, we passed the ex-Bonita.
I posted pics of this blue tug last year here . . . scroll through. Unconfirmed report is that the boat is about to enter a new chapter in its life, after being the tool of someone with truth issues, as explained in the story here.
What I find even more remarkable is that an even older Johnston Brothers boat–Sea Bird–is still active. Anyone know others?
