Model Barges 97 and 58 are recorded as being at the Elizabeth Marine Ways several times between 1909 and 1913.  JW notes the barges dates at EMW on two separate pages titled " Boats  Barges" and " Freight Barges."

The Steamer RIVAL is directly to the left of Model Barge 58 with the Steamer SAMUEL CLARKE to the left of the RIVAL. The small boat with a clam shell bucket, behind Model Barge 58, appears to have the name CYCLONE DIGGER on its side.
