I'm pretty sure that the person to the Big Cap's left isn't Jimmy Swartzwelder, because the guy in the photo is too old. Jimmy was only about Doc's age, I believe, or maybe even a year or two younger. But you're right: that sure is a classic Robert H. McCann pose! With the info from Shipyard and Bob regarding Capt. Kelley and Capt. Tate's licenses, the fact that they were licensed on additional stretches of river just makes it harder to identify where the photo was taken (Ohio River or Lower Mississippi) and why they were all gathered for this shot. I've never seen a photo of S. Durward Hoag, so haven't a clue whether that is him or not. So the mystery continues . . . Need some old Greene Line crew and passengers to help out here.
