I have some photos of his Grandfather that he may want when he worked for my Grandfather on the Northside of Pittsburgh in the 40`s. or 50`s. It shows the sternwheel of the`Mary Alice` and Bunk Robb discussing some type of a repair with my Grandfather. If anyone has a contact for Larry please pass it along. Merry Christmas, 12/18/08.

What a gem of a site. I look forward to spending more time looking through all of the sections. My original search was for my grandfather`s boat A.R.Budd (Albert Robinson Budd b.1879 Cincinnati, d.1965 Pittsburgh) and was thrilled to see so many wonderful images of boats and of early Pittsburgh. You might also want to look at the online photograph collection of riverboats from the Cincinnati Library. MANY thanks for all of your efforts to record and share river history.

My grandfather, Charles Denny recieved his First Mates License while working on the Sprague in 1914. He was out of New Albany, Indiana (across the river from Louisville).I have his License framed and it states that he was the First Mate on the Sprague. Is there anything remaining from the Sprague since the fire in the 1980`s in Vicksburg?

I thoroughly enjoyed this site! Having been born and raised in Elizabeth, the pictures especially brought back so many memories. I am fortunate to own a couple of Dick (R.T.)Wiley`s books, `Elizabeth and Her Neighbors` and `Monongahela:The River and It`s Region` and a copy of the sheet music `Strew Blossoms on Their Graves`. Mr. Wiley lived on Walker`s Heights just down the street from my grandparents. And Capt. Howder`s house was just across the street. In his back yard was a pilot wheel from a river boat that we kids played on while watching the river. Two of my uncles worked on the river while in school and, at one time, I could identify the boats by the sound of their whistles. I spent many summer hours on the lock walls waiting for boats to lock through and get treats of fruit and candy from the crew. And while swimming at the Water Worksgoing out to catch the waves of boats angleing in for the locks. Keep up the good work!!

My Grandfather was the Engineer of the Sprague for some years His name was George F. Spellman In the early seventys when the Sprague was in Pittsburgh our family took my Grandfather to see the Sprague He was so excited He showed us the drive arm for the paddlewheel where it had broken He cut out the bad section and repaired the drive arm. The repair was still their. He took the broken section and made my Grandmother a rolling pin which we have in our family

A few years ago I acquired an antique item from a riverboat. I am not sure what it is, but it looks to be a type of hand crank wench for maybe pulling a boat to dock or possibly pulling an anchor. It sits approximately 3` tall, 18` around, and probably weighs 500 lbs. It has a baseball bat looking handle with four holes around the top that this wooden handle fits into. On the bottom there is a type of clog that can be reversed for obviously going in or out. Painted on the side is S.S. Coal City. If anyone has any information on this please let me know what it is, year, and any other related info. Thanks, Ben

Absolutely wonderful site! I grew up 40 miles NE of Pittsburgh in Westmoreland Co. My mother would take us to Pittsburgh to the zoo, Phipps Conservatory, County Fair, museums, etc. I am lover of obsolete forms of transportation - canals, steam & sailboats, steam trains, trolleys, interurban electric trains, - so this site sends me half way to heaven. Thanks for all your work. I`ve passed the site on to everyone I know from Pittsburgh.Paul BreznyAsheville, NC

My great grandfather, William Henry Knight, helped build the Monongahela Bridge. He was a supervisor of some sort. My dad says he was `general contractor,` but dad exagerrates. All I know is that he had some men under him; one summer he allowed his son, Bill Knight (Nicholas William Knight) to keep track of what time men clocked in and out. On his last day, the men cheered for Bill (because of his honesty in keeping the records). Can you suggest where I can look for information on the building of the bridge? --pkljdl@msn.com and plynn@bethalto.org Thank you!

This is a great site, especially for one so closely allied with the Elizabeth Marine Ways. My father, Bill Griffith, worked there on both Steamers and later Diesel Powered towboats. I was born just across the Railroad tracks from the Marine Ways on Church Street.My brother Bill mentioned that you may be interested in some photos we have. I have them digitally stored so if will be very easy to provide you with copies.I have the Mongah, the Ranger, the Cresent as well as photos of both MV Humphries and MV Arkwright. You are more than welcome to any or all of these. Just let me know what you want and where to send them.Again thank you for a great site.

I was born in Mon City with my twin brother John in March of 1955. I also have a sister, Carol Ware who still lives in Elizabeth.My dad was from Elizabeth and worked at the Marine Ways for 35 years. He retired in 1983. My mom, Lillian Godlesky/Hotkewicz was born and raised in Bunola. I grew up in Elizabeth and lived there till my early twentys. While working my way through flight school, I worked myself at the Marine Ways from early `75 through early `80.I enjoyed working there with all the `old timers`. They had lot`s of great stories to share with us. My dad Joe Sr., Tom Brown Sr. & Jr.,Red Watson (Little Red), Nick (Palooch)Monich, Harry (Cat) Sowa, Johnny Opher,Ray Hammadock, Grover Plants, Bill Griffith, George Douglas, Dave Kreutzer and many more that I really miss. It was a great learning experience working there. I learned values that I still use today. And I learned to be a kind gentleman by emulating the MEN that worked there.

This is a tremendous site. I came across it several months ago. I had just got broadband and had been doing a lot of browsing. I grew up in Fayette City (I now live in a suburb of Phila.) and just on a whim I typed in `Allenport Ferry`. I was greatly suprised when up poppped the entry with a picture of the `ferry flat` which was built at the Elizabeth Marine Ways.My relatives who lived in Allenport but worked in Fayette City rode it every day. When the river got to high the ferry man would row them across in the dinghy. They were both widowed business women and it was quite a site with them in their finery in the row boat.Thanks again for your hard work.

Would it be possible for us to use some of the pictures from your site to print and hang on the walls of the meeting room. We would like to use these pictures to educate our teens on the history of steam boating. If you would know where we might be able to acquire posters of steamboats, we would love to have these as well. Thank you for your consideration to this request.

I grew up on Fifth Street,Townhill of Elizabeth Boro. I have fond memories of the Indian Rocks,the playground,and the old cemetary on Bayard street where I often played. I`ll never forget Volps store where I bought loads of penny candy,Popsicles, and Mr.Freeze`s. It seems so strange not to see Maraccini`s store or the Five-and-Ten,and Rexall`s drug store when I`m in town. I have so many other memories;they`re too numerous to count.

I have been to this site many times. It is like walking into a time machine. I have used the info and site when teaching Huck Finn in class. I have read many of the postings in the guest book and have to admit that it is very difficult to explain to people just what it was like. I think Dewey is right when he thanked our parents. We didn`t have a clue and they created something special for us. I lived in town from the early 50`s and left for the Lehigh Valley in 76. With the family dwindling, home is one of those places you never get back to often enough, and when you do you leave too soon. Thanks for the memories.

What a delight reading about Elizabeth`s boatbuilding history. I didn`t move into town until 1965 but it was a wonderful place to be. Climbing the steel steps up to the junior high was always a treat, especially when snow was falling! Murphy`s 5 and 10 provided THE spot to get the latest 45`s and newest nail colors. After school stopping into the Crystal or Cochenour and Miller`s Drug store for a 10 cent Coke was a great way to gossip after high school. Thanks so much for such a fine job.

I was happy to find this site. My grandfather, W.W. Fisher, worked at the U. S. Boatyard in Charleroi until 1947. His brother Ben and brother-in-law Seth Bane worked on Lock 4, both old and new. I grew up in Fallowfield Twp. outside of Charleroi. I remember some of the stern wheelers working the river during my childhood, but the only one I can remember the name of was the Homestead. I collect postcards of Charleroi, PA and have about 160. I visit Charleroi at least once a year.
