The Thor, Rustler, and Renown Tug Boats at Humboldt Bay, 1983

From the time I was a child, I always liked tug boats and locomotives. I think the start for me, was via Little Golden Books. I loved the book Tootle, and another about harbors and tugs. When I was very young I also listened to a 78 RPM recording of Sparky and the Talking Train. I was hooked, and though I no longer read Little Golden Books, the love for these heavy movers remains with me.
