Tug 'Martha Stewart' - 1940

Taken by a Buffalo Evening News photographer on January 18, 1940, the tug Martha Stewart plows through the nearly frozen Buffalo Harbor at the Niagara River. It is carrying out its regular job ferrying employees to the water intake.

At the helm is Captain Clarence V. (Paddy) Fix. Visible at right are the smokestacks of the Colonel Ward Pumping Station. The Peace Bridge is in the distance at left.

Who this "Martha Stewart" was is not known...
