boats had outlived their usefulness, they met various fates; the
journal documents many boats being burned to the water line or
dynamited. Other boats were towed to locations along the river and left
to decay. These locations were called "Boneyards."
One boneyard was across the river from the Elizabeth Marine Ways, and in
this boneyard from about 1918 until March 1925, in addition to
various boats,barges and

HORNER. The pictures below are
