Authentic Scale Model Replica of the Steam-Powered Ferry Boat
Paul F. Thomas Model by John Bowman

Capt. Paul F. Thomas had the 107-foot by 30-foot stern-wheel ferryboat Paul F. Thomas built at Madison, Indiana in 1934 to run in his Twenty-Sixth Street Ferry Co., from Huntington, West Virginia to Proctorville, Ohio. The engines placed in the Paul F. Thomas came from his 1921 ferryboat Oweva, (Ohio, West Virginia) which in-turn came from the packet boat Carrie Brown, built by Marietta Manufacturing Co. at Harmar, Ohio in 1890. The Paul F. Thomas ferry, dismantled at Huntington in February of 1948, was said to be the biggest ferryboat of its type ever on the river. One can see her whistle and steam engines preserved and on display at the Ohio River Museum, Marietta, Ohio.

    Thanks for your post. I also think laptop computers have grown to be more and more popular these days, and now in many cases are the only type of computer included in a household. The reason is that at the same time that they are becoming more and more cost-effective, their processing power keeps growing to the point where they can be as powerful as pc’s through just a few years back.
