Bow and side view of 'P.S. Ruby' (II), with P.S. Corowa at rear, tied to river bank, according to Harry Godson, at Morgan, just above the wharf.

Side view of 'P.S. Success' in Lock 3 ahead of P.S. Canally and P.S. Renmark, with lock construction in foreground. Several crew seem to be pulling on the rudder of 'Success'. [From F. Tucker]: 'this photo was taken in 1923 at Lock 3. PS 'Renmark' couldn't stem the tide through the navigable pass as the river was in flood and she was towing a heavily laden barge. PS 'Canally' was nearby and with her assistance, a further attempt was made. When this attempt failed, the PS 'Success' was also brought in to offer assistance and the combined power of the three paddle steamers succeeded in making it up through the navigable pass.'
