Tugs and Other Hard-working Vessels of Puget Sound
A Scrapbook From the Earlier DaysBook - 2010
For a time, in the first half of the 20th century, commercial vessels powered by sail, steam, and internal combustion engines were all plying their trade together on Puget Sound. During those earlier years, mills were busy sawing logs to satisfy the hungry market for lumber, plywood, and other wood products. Boat building and commercial fishing flourished, too. As tie went on, wind power gave way to steam propulsion, steam machinery was replaced by internal combustion engines, and paddle wheels disappeared in favor of propellers. This was a unique and exciting era of Puget Sound maritime activity.
