Steamer R.J. HESLOP     Photo Taken July 2, 1934        R.J. HESLOP brief history from 'Ways Steam Towboat Directory"

The photo of the Steamer R.J. HESLOP above is from the collection of George Churchwell, nephew of Captain John M. Hysmith.  Captain Hysmith owned the R.J. HESLOP in 1934 when this photo was taken. This photo shows the R.J. HESLOP on July 2, 1934 boarding passengers on the West Elizabeth, PA side of the Monongahela River , Elizabeth, PA is in the background.  The R.J. HESLOP is preparing to lead a Riverboat Parade in commemoration of Elizabeth's 100th birthday, note the sign on the boat and the calliope player on the top deck.

The brief history of the R.J. HESLOP is from the "Ways Steam Towboat Directory" written by Fred Ways JR.

JW does write in his journal on December 5, 1937 that the R. J. HESLOP burned.

A very different Steamer R. J. HESLOP, apparently sometime between 1931 and 1934
