   Steamers Rover and J. B.Finley, Rover built 1902   Photo from collection of John Kyle, a former Superintendent at EMW  

The two photos above were taken at the Elizabeth Marine Ways, based upon hand written information on the photo from the personal collection of John Kyle.  JW writes in his journal that the ROVER and J. B. FINLEY were at EMW together on three occasions, December, 1910, November 1912, and May 1915.  Based upon the dress of the two men on the FINLEY, in the photo above right, I believe we are looking at the event described during May 1915.
