It’s the sailing freighter Ceres, a moving cornucopia of all things edible, sixth boro bound
with auxiliary power for the Canals, where sailing is not an option.

At the tiller, it looks like Steve Schwartz, whose inimitable idea of a figurehead appears in foto 8 here affixed to sloop Woody Guthrie.
Much appreciation to Fred Wehner for all fotos here. Fair winds to Ceres.
