The Coal Ship "J.R. Sensibar"

The Coal Ship "J.R. Sensibar" | Photograph | Wisconsin Historical Society
Aerial view of a large ship with a considerable amount of dark smoke coming from the rear. The ship appears to be heading toward a large field of coal built out into the water. Caption reads: "The coal ship J.R. Sensibar churned the muddy water at her stern as she tried to free herself Monday from a mud bank where she went aground Sunday. She had driven her bow into the mud while maneuvering in wind to enter the Electric Co.'s Oak Creek dock. The ship was pulled free by a tug Monday night."
