Herbert C. Jackson in Buffalo -
Brian W.

Jackson led up the Buffalo River Entrance Channel by the tug Washington.

Jackson making her first turn just above the North & South Piers.

Through the Watson Basin as seen from the Port Bridge Wing of the Missile Cruiser USS Little Rock.

Michigan St., just off the St. Mary's Cement (Kellogg) Elevator as the Jackson is clearing through the draw.

Tug pulling astern to slow the reach of the Jackson as the tow starts into the dangerous curve under the Ohio St. Bridge.

Easing the big freighter's bow up through the bend at Ohio St. while the stern swings under the bridge on an acute angle.

The bow lookout is calling in the closing distance to the wall of the old Electric Elevator Dock.

Stern is now coming around as the bridge tender at Ohio St. begins to lower the draw behind her.

Tug has dropped her tow line and is lightly pushing the Jackson's bow up to the Standard Elevator while deckhands secure the lines before unloading can begin.
