Children visit the Walter J. McCarthy Jr.

Fourth graders at Homecroft School in Duluth made a visit to the Walter J. McCarthy, Jr. on June 3, 1999 while the boat was loading coal at Midwest Energy Resources in Superior.
Captain Larry Smyth is surrounded by 4th graders eager to hear about the boat.
Here two of them hear all about the ship from First Mate Bill Stirton while 2nd mate Al Flood (just left of center in the back) looks on.
