    Default "Towboat Talk" - Verity, Sebald, Weeks, Hatfield...

    Shipyard Sam mentioned seeing the GEORGE M. VERITY underway in the Cincinnati harbor. Here is a somewhat pale image of her passing under the Suspension Bridge. The late Delly Robertson, of New Richmond, Ohio, was a skilled photographer and took a number of outstanding color slides of the VERITY and other steam towboats -- that were fast fading from the scene -- as they passed through the Cincinnati area. The slides were bequeathed to Dale Flick, who has graciously shared them for programs several times at MOR S&D Chapter meetings.

    The WEBER W. SEBALD, as previously discussed, was formerly the JOHN W. WEEKS, built at Dubuque in 1926. She was renamed in 1948 when sold to the Armco Steel Corporation. Herewith are two images of her underway.
