American barge ‘Helen III’, from Mobile, Alabama approaches Havana’s port dock, carrying 1,614 metric tons of newsprint and about six tons of timber on Friday July 11, 2003, in Havana, Cuba.

The 323-foot-long barge -resembling a floating, tarp-wrapped warehouse - was the first U.S.-flag, U.S.-crewed commercial vessel to enter the harbor since the United States broke relations with Cuba in 1961, according to the Cuban government press center and Port Captain Gilfredo Ravelo.
