*Steam crane/Fort Wool?"
Steamboating colleagues:
Good question Alan poses with picture link followed by Wesley's comments. I don't know a thing about Ft. Wool and will click the above to view it later. I don't know much, but opine the "steam crane on a barge" possibly doing work on a sectional caisson around the impressive stone structure. The caisson in this case 'could' be wood. Usually steam cranes or boats lifting, lowering wickets on the older Ohio River dams didn't have a name but, in many cases, a number. Times when the crew did give them a pet name with all the meanings of said names entail. Heck, what do I know?
