Aloha (Barge), U106542, aground, 13 Aug 1901

Full Text

While on her way to Tonawanda with a cargo of lumber, in tow of a tug, the barge ALOHA parted her lines and was left at the mercy of the current, finally fetching up on the bottom at the foot of Hertel Ave. The tug CASCADE was sent down and after several hours pulling succeeded in releasing the barge and landing her safely at her Tonawanda dock. She is apparently uninjured.
