Description

BRIEF HISTORY

Towboats like the TAURUS were a familiar sight in every American harbor and navigable tidal flat at the turn of the century. Graceful yet functional, they pulled large liners and pushed heavy barges with ease. During the 1930’s steam engines lost ground to Diesel propulsion, and by the 1960’s the steam units were all but gone. No longer used, a few steam tugs survive today as museum relics.
