    Looks like a freighter at anchor with a tug or supply vessel moored beside it. Freighter is discharging cargo to the smaller vessel.

    Looks like a seagoing tug (two stacks) maybe helping a freighter from New York during a recovery. Water seems to be being removed from the ship. Maybe was waiting to pass through the canal for scrapping somewhere.

    I believe that may be the sea going Pancanal tug SS Favorite in the foreground. I think on the original the names of both can be indentified. Please do this and a lot more information may be had i bet. When such vital data is quite obviously available please try to take the time to provide it instead of a overall “fire alarm.” We can do better for you-all only if you try a bit harder too. Bob K

      Bob is asking can you tell us what the name on the stern of the larger ship is, it should be legible on the original photo. The port of registry is New York. The name is A——–

    The Favorite was used by Aids to Navigation and was stationed at the Gatun Lighthouse Landing.
    She was only on Loan to the Panama Canal.
    The small barge by the tug is a diving barge.
