Cool scow pic from 1912

Came upon this cool 1912 picture of the American Museum scow "Mary Jane" recently. It is undated but likely 1912 based on some of the people on board and the badlands in background. Dinosaur hunting legend Barnum Brown stands directly below the stovepipe. George Sternberg and his wife are on the far right with their daughter Ethel. The others are likely local farmers and their families paying a visit.

The weather is looking great for this weekend so we can get more scow construction done and try out our old wood-burning stove. Tonight I will go and see the truck and trailer that will be used to haul the scow.

  1. Darren, the launch will be exciting! Looking at the picture above, we will need women and babies to properly send you off.
