1980s archives, Part 1

I was going through some stuff for a yard sale, and in the process I found some pictures I thought had been lost forever. First, this evening, these two.

This was taken near Mile 281. I think the boat is the T.M. Norsworthy of HBL.

Then there is this one of the Oliver C. Shearer waiting to enter the Gallipolis Locks and Dam. This one is noteworthy because of the old oval AEP logo on the stacks.

AEP had begun moving to the newer, slanted red logo by at least 1988. I know that because tomorrow morning's post features the M/V Winchester passing through the Winfield Locks and Dam that year.
