Crescent has fleets in at least three southern cities, and I’ve featured some of them previously here.

Providence, built 1953, has quite some history in the Northeast, including the sixth boro. Port Allen was built in NYC at Consolidated in 1945, and Angus R. Cooper dates from 1965.

I’d never thought of this before, but from this angle, it appears that W. O. Decker is painted in Crescent Towing livery.

Margaret F. Cooper, similarly, worked for a time in NYC’s sixth boro.

As did Miriam Walmsley Cooper!  But southern living seems to agree with these boats, from what I could see as I passed.

Have another look at Providence.  I’m sure some of you have photos of some of these boats back when they worked in the Northeast.
