This is an original press photo. The Towboat Kishwaukee, having abandoned its barges, tries to ram its way out of huge ice gorge that has choked off Mississippi river traffic north of Cairo. Trapped in the ice last night, the boat turned back downstream and was freed from the gorge with the help of the powerful towboat Missouri. The Kishwaukee then joined the Missouri and other towboats in an effort to cut a channel through the 21-mile ice barrier.Photo measures 7.75 x 10inches. Photo is dated 02-02-1958.
