This week I have a mix of new photos and some from the mid 1970’s. Dalzell Eagle, later became McAllister Brothers. Steven McAllister and Catherine McAllister at Bergen Point, the bridge in the background was the Newark Bay Railroad Bridge.
Today, ships passing the area where the bridge was located, call it “Old Bay Draw”. USS Yorktown under tow out of Bayonne after decommissioning, later became a museum ship in South Carolina.
Shipping prior to container ships include, a Reefer from Chile with a cargo of produce, and a Cargo ship heading for the Brooklyn piers.
New photos include, Iver Foss assisting tug on the Left Coast Lifter tow, Brooklyn with several tugs in the background. (Click images to enlarge.)
