Ken came up with additional photos of his overnight in the transient slip at South Street Seaport Museum many years ago . . .  so here they are.  Note the Twin Towers in the background.  To the right side of the photo, I’m guessing that’s a mastless Lettie G. Howard and Major General William H. Hart, now languishing along the Arthur Kill.


Here’s a close up of the stick lighter, identified by eastriver as Vernie S. 


Russell Grinell, among other things, was an owner of schooner Pioneer before she came to SSSM.


Here’s Black Pearl in the foreground, with a respectable looking eagle’s figurehead.


And finally, this might be the stern of Anna Christina, which sank in the “perfect storm” as mentioned in this NYTimes article.


Again, many thanks to Ken Deeley for bringing these photos he took from the transient dock several decades ago to the light.  One of my tugster goals is to publish photos like these, bringing them into the  “creative commons.”
