Thanks, Bill for all that info on the photo. CW had annotated the back with the fact that the WASHINGTON was being repaired after hitting a lock gate, and at the bottom he had a 1940 date, which was after the W.'s demise. I think CW dated his photos as to when he received them. He got this one from F. Way.

Dale, for those of us not that familiar with Cincinnati, where was the Marine Railway in relation to the Public Landing, upstream or down?

Fred, As to who should be posting: everyone who has an interest, period.

Our diversity made this board so interesting, and that diversity seems to have homogenized too much lately into more or less one interest. That's why I thought I'd throw out the 'boatyards' thread because there are so many variations that can spin off of it.
