sand barges

Barges used in the transportation of sand and gravel. On the Ohio River and elsewhere there is quite an extensive industry in dredging sand and gravel from the river bed, screening it, washing it, and selling it to contractors for making concrete, etc. A dredge so engaged is called a sand digger.
