If that wheel is working, then it can’t be anything in the sixth boro.  These fotos of the steamer Natchez come from Capt. Justin Zizes.

who took them here in the proximity of the Greater New Orleans Bridge.  Natchez the hull is a half century newer than her engine and machinery.

Tug in the foreground is Angus R. Cooper.  I’m not sure what the pusher tug with barge is.

Pauline M . . .  resembles at least a half dozen knees-prominent sixth boro tugs.

And a thousand miles to the northeast and fully accessible by water . . . a foto from Detroit,  thanks to Ken of MichiganExposures, showing  Wisconsin-built, New Jersey-powered Canadian-flagged bulk carrier Saginaw.  Meeting Saginaw is mailboat J. W. Westcott.

And finally, back in the sixth boro, some fotos from John Watson . . .  ATB Brownsville spinning with barge Petrochem Trader, East Coast, First Coast, Sarah Ann,  and Nahoku.

Navigator?  Sea Shuttle?   Anyhow, bound from Rhode Island to Virginia.

Again, thanks to Justin, Ken, and John for sending these along.
