The short life of Georgia Lee.

Built in 1898 at Jeffersonville, Indiana. Owned and operated by the Lee Line of Memphis. Ran on both the lower Misssissippi and Ohio rivers. Lost in 1918 to ice floes at Memphis.

"Tote that barge, lift that bale, get a little drunk and ya land in jail." Perfectly depicted here. What would we do without Shorpy, best thing on the interweb.

Send for Grayson and Keel. It's showtime!
