Stuff to do

Pictures are backing up.

First are some that I shot today while working on a story for this week's State Journal.

And last night I found a couple of photos that one of my brothers took of the Sprague on a trip up the Ohio River in the 1960s or thereabouts. If I still worked at my place of former employment, I could check the old clip files and get an estimate of the date, as I recall seeing a photo of the Sprague being pushed past Ironton, Ohio.

From my brother's photos of the  Sprague, it looked like it was being pushed by a boat resembling the Fred Way. But the photo is old, and it was taken with consumer-level camera and film of that time.

If anyone has any information the last trip of the Sprague up the Ohio or a good link, feel free to forward it as I get those pictures ready to post on here.
