Hi, Alan:
Thanks for info Re: photographer standing on the pier of the Roebling Suspension Bridge to catch that remarkable shot. I'd forgotten that after the bridge was completed [Cables and deck] many of the big U.S. MAIL LINE boats and others laid below the bridge due to lack of clearance for their tall stacks. Closer photo analysis of the first boat shows a number of people standing at the bow by the rails. Wonder if they knew the 'pitcher man' was focusing down on them?

Humble question: Any chance the boat lying further down could...possibly...be the GENERAL BUELL? [WAY'S DIRECTORY Entry No. 2231 Pg. 179].

Cheers, R. Dale Flick
