Baltimore harbor as seen from the Baltimore Museum of Industry, with the iconic Domino Sugar building in the distance. Dockside is the  S.S. Baltimore,  the oldest operating steam-powered, coal-fired tugboat in the country. Built in 1906 by the Skinner Shipbuilding Company in Baltimore, Maryland,  Baltimore  was primarily a municipal tug, but in winter weather (like the kind we’re experiencing now), she worked as an ice breaker, creating navigable channels in the otherwise locked in harbor.
