5/9 - Buffalo scenes - Brian Wroblewski

Rebecca Lynn tied to her barge in the Niagara River, near the South Grand Island Bridges.

Tug's stern. She is very similar to the Karen Andrie that used to push this same barge.

The tug in the notch of the A-397 showing the barge secured to the mooring dolphins at the Noco Product Terminal.

The unloading manifold can be seen in this shot of the pier. Notice the barge's trim, high at the bow and lower towards the stern.

The Buffalo Memorial Auditorium (the "Aud") under demolition at this time. The Buffalo Skyway Bridge crosses the Buffalo River to the right of the shot. The basement of this building was dug right through the remains of the junction of the old Erie Canal and Main-Hamburg Canals in downtown Buffalo. Development proposals for the rehab of the site include plans to rebuild part of these lost waterways as a tourist attraction right where the remains of the Aud are coming down in this photo.
