We have posted a number of interesting images of vehicles being shipped by barge on rivers in the past, although the two photos below taken close to ten years apart, show the dramatic changes in automobile styling in that short period.
The source identifies the lead photo as having been taken at St. Louis, MO, in July of 1959. It contains a load of 1959 Chevrolet cars and trucks on a barge docked on the Mississippi. The black and white photo below contains 1949 Ford cars being pushed by a boat that was taken on August 19, 1949, on the same river.
Please share with us what you find of interest in these Arthur Witman photographs courtesy of the State Historical Society of Missouri.
