The barge does not seem to be moored alongside the visible floating grain elevator. It may be moored against a second, hidden, elevator. The barge “Ned” was built by John Neville, Ottawa, 1881, registration 83322, 110' long, 8' draught, 152 gross tons, square stern, owned by Ottawa Transportation Company, registry closed 28 January 1908.

Stereoview of Montreal showing the Allan Line's CALIFORNIAN being loaded with grain by one of the harbour's floating elevators. A group of idlers watching the activity from the pier, looking in part, through the dredge moored to the right of the image. The barge being unloaded appears to be named NED _OTT__
