After 30 years docked on the Anacostia River, the Display Ship Barry was towed away this morning, past the Yards Park and Nats Park and through the opened swing span of the Douglass Bridge. This was the first part of its final voyage, heading to Philadelphia for dismantling after it was determined that it would be too costly to rehab, and that the planned new fixed-span Douglass Bridge would otherwise leave it permanently landlocked.
Social media is already well flooded with photos, but of course I had to take my own, and I chose to head across to Anacostia Park and Poplar Point, so that I could capture the Barry passing its neighbors, old and new.
The full gallery is here, but here's some previews.
Also, Mr. JDLand was deputized to take videos of the Barry's initial move and turn-around from its dock, and then the Barry's last moments in the neighborhood, as it passed the Douglass Bridge.
Again, the full gallery is here. (And I don't want to talk about that dust speck.)
UPDATE: Here's a post about the history of the Barry from The Hill is Home.

Great photos JD (and Mr. JD too). Thank you for documenting the last trip. All of my pictures came out dark and grainy, so glad you're there to capture every important moment!

It was tough light once the sun went behind the clouds.

That shot of the bow with the dome in the background is amazing.
