Actually these fotos are really random, alternating between the Hudson and the Ohio, and then some. Atlantic Service anchors off the Palisades,

Chuckie D leaves the southbound lock for Wheeling,

Comet heads south past the mouth of Rondout Creek Lighthouse,

and Vivian McGinnis travels downstream through Cincinnati. Notice the logo of McGinnis Inc.

Also, for other fotos of Vivian and many more, check out this link.

Finally, here’s a sweet tug in Rondout Creek, nameless to me, but I’m sure someone know its name.

Some stats–Atlantic Service dates from 1975, Chuckie D from 1952, this Comet maybe from 1977, and Vivian from 1976. My money for the yellow one whose name I don’t know is . . . oldest of all.
