[Two Barges in Water]

Description: Photograph of two barges. There is a large crane named Golden Rule mounted on one of the barges. Used in the oil induatry, some of these barge cranes were built by Levingston. Others came to Levingston to be serviced, or have maintenance work performed. The other barge tied along side of the crane barge is believed to be a cable operated ferry barge used at Levingston Shipyard to ferry men and equipment to and from the main shipbuilding area on the island. It was later replaced with a barge bridge which spanned the entire width of the river allowing uninterrupted flow of men and equipment to and from the island.
