A daybreak photograph of Paul L Luedtke tugboat docked by the Rail & Lake grain elevator on Buffalo River, Buffalo, New York. The sun was not up yet and the dim light and clouds floating overhead allowed for the ship lights to come through brightly. The air was calm and the river provided a mirror like reflection of both the tug and the massive concrete structure.
Paul L Luedtke is a tug boat operating under the US flag and is 66 feet (22 meters) long and 30 feet (10 meters) wide. Irt was built in 1988
The Lake and Rail Grain Elevator was built up between 1927 and 1930 when two annexes were added to it, a north and a south. It lacks the grain elevator hallmark - the concrete cylinders. They've been hidden by flat walls built around them.© Daniel Novak Photo - Buffalo Location Photography - Landscapes, Architecture, CityscapesReferences
