Every once in a while YouTube recommends a good video that I might not have found otherwise...today they recommended this film:

I also enjoyed, from the same YouTube channel, this film on the canalization of the Ohio River from 1929, which includes lots of sternwheeler footage taken in Pittsburg, Cincinatti, and Louisville:

I thought some here would be interested. Sorry for butchering the spelling of Cincinnati.

I found the second film particularly interesting...45 years ago I went to work for a mechanical contractor based in Portland ME; in the 10 years I worked for them we did several projects for Gulf Oil on Neville Island PA and one project for ARCO in Steubenville OH...the upper Ohio River valley was pretty grim when I was there; it's hard to imagine how much dirtier it was in the "old days" in Pittsburgh until you see films like this!

A few months ago there was an employee badge from the DTI railroad with the 20ís T radiator shell behind a locomotive. It sold for around $450 which was good money but I thought it would go higher with the cross collectability.

It sticks in my mind that when my father was a kid, he and his friends called it Dog Turd & Ice. Kids.
