Photo including Model Barge ADA is dated 1912, from collection of Historic Pittsburgh   Close up of Model Barge ADA

On his list of Freight Barges that were at the Elizabeth Marine Ways, JW writes that a Model Barge AIDA was at the EMW on August 28, 1912.  It is my belief that this is a mis-spelling and that the barge was actually the ADA. I do not have any documentation to support my theory and I base this belief primarily on the name AIDA being an uncharacteristic name for a river craft during this period of time. Comments are welcome.
