Hi George:

I was browsing through your photos, and this one caught my attention.  Apparently, this scow or barge has been stranded there since 1918. (97 years ago)!!!  And, get this George, there is quite a bit of history surrounding this barge: http://www.niagarafrontier.com/scow.html.  A fascinating, nail-biting rescue drama.

Here's another photo (taken 2/19/14) showing this deteriorating vessel from another angle...                                                                                            

Thanks for putting your photo up.  Now, folks can read all about it.
