Tug - Ruby & barge Milwaukee - U.S.A.


The tug Ruby and barge Milwaukee are seen in this photograph while they were secured alongside the cofferdam which was being excavated in the Genesee River in Rochester. The mud had been scooped from the river bed and loaded on to the barge for delivery to a confined disposal facility in Lackawanna (Buffalo area) off shore from the old Bethlehem Steel plant. This photograph was taken by Jason LaDue during the morning hours of a day in May of 2001.
