On the deck of the John J. Boland

The John J. Boland started life in 1973 as the Charles E. Wilson. When American Steamship Company’s boat called the John J. Boland was sold to Lower Lakes Towing a couple years ago, the Charles E. Wilson became the new John J. Boland. Above, taken last week from the deck of the Boland while it was at its winter layup berth at the Port Authority.
