W.P. Snyder Jr. photograph
Description: The stern-wheel towboat W.P. Snyder Jr pushing a barge. Carnegie Steel commissioned the boat to be used for transporting much needed coal. When the boat eventually wore out it's usefulness to it's owners it became a candidate to be taken out of commission and dismantled. It was saved from this fate so that it could be kept as an important piece of history. View on Ohio Memory.
