This list of boats and barges was written in 1908.  The following notation was written in the top margin years later. 

" These boats and barges with few exceptions are all wrecked long ago." 

I am not sure what the dates indicate, I assume the left column indicates the date of arrival and the right column is the date of departure from the Ways.
