GEO W WASHBURN Model of steam tugboat
The model of GEO W WASHBURN with four images to view.
1/48 scale model 1890. The George W Washburn was launched by the Cornell Steamboat Company to move barges with cargo like stones, sand and bricks on the Hudson River between Albany and New York City. During her early years , she was considered the fastest tug on the Hudson.
Since she took on paying passengers , her appearance was kept up. It was said that a Cornell Steamboat could be noticed from great distances by its yellow & black smoke stacks.
Sad to say , the George W Washburnand Cornell Steamboat Company no longer exist.
