Thanks to Jan van der Doe,
enjoy these photos of
translated as “side wheel steamer,”
a museum ship in Duisburg, Germany.
The side wheel barge tug Oscar Huber
was built in Duisburg Ruhrort in 1922.
She towed barges until 1966
between Rotterdam and Karlsruhe,
about a 300-mile trip on the Rhine.
She’s a sole survivor, the only of its kind
on the Rhine River saved from scrapping.
In 1974 it was turned into a museum.
