Something Different 46

What the title means is something different than I had planned . . .  So watch this series of screen shots . . .  first at 0010 hrs today. But then, look who picks it up, re-messages it, and it appears in their news feed!!  NBC, NYDailyNews, USNews . . .!! Tri-CityHerald comes from Washington […]

Name that Port 1 Response

Thanks for your patience; this follows up the post from two days ago.  The port is Boston, the date is November 1960, and the fleet tied up at the T wharf.  Luna, pictured below, is still extant; the others . . . I believe are all gone. Above in the distance and below, that’s Orion. […]

Hudson Downbound ’18b

Pre-foliage spring is optimal time for seeing the landmarks along the Hudson.  This one is near Wilderstein (scroll), but I’d never seen it before. Esopus Meadows cannot be missed either down bound or up.  Get on the wrong side, and you’ll regret ever being here. Click here for tugster posts showing the light in all […]

Hudson Downbound ’18a

Here’s a Hudson down bound set of three posts I did five years ago, in a different season. This trip starts at Scarano’s just south of Albany, where a crew picked up excursion boat Kingston for delivery to Manhattan.   Last fall after delivery up bound, I posted these landmarks. Spirit of Albany (1966), operated […]

Random Ships *8

We continue along the Great Coast, now on Lake Erie, a place of dramatic early morning skies. And lakers against the canary daybreak. Calumet has just left the Cuyahoga, Italcementi Essroc has the very best logo . . . and Stephen B. Roman has worn it for some time now, as it also has the […]

GWA2: Hudson River

I took these photos over a two-day period in late July, traveling the entire 130 miles of the Hudson from the Battery to Troy while on the trip from Narragansett Bay to the “source” of the Chicago River.  RV Shearwater here surveys the river/bay;  that’s Willy Wall on the horizon left, so the Battery is behind […]

Jetster Inbound

The flight back home through LaGuardia the other day chilled with its turbulence but thrilled with scenery.  I used my phone rather than camera to avoid hitting the window with the lens. Here we enter  NYC airspace over Raritan Bay.  Imagine this on a clock face at the 0800 and heading clockwise. The land is […]

Here’s a link to the series. Click anywhere on the photo below to see its provenance.  My question is .  . where and when was this photo taken? Here’s a closer up of the top portion of the photo.  And if you haven’t clicked on the photo above, I’ll tell you the source is a fine […]

From the Line Locker 19

Here’s an index of the previous “locker” posts. Let’s start with a photo from a secret salt seeking an identification.  All I know is that this photo of an “old army tug” was taken in 1982 and that the building in the background is the Brooklyn Army Terminal, a frequent background in sixth boro photos […]
