It could be, Stein.
It appears to be named something like "Ceres" and registered in Jersey City NJ. There is what appears to be a suction pipe leading into the midships hold of the Vaterland. It could also be a bunkering barge loading coal. The main cargo seems to be barrels of something as seen on the dock.
The "barge" tied up astern of it has "Customs House" on a board at the back and a word ending in "Vanna" on a side window.
The tug is the Herbert E. Keller of the Hudson Towboat Company. Considering egotistical figureheads there is an eagle with wings spread attached to the tug's monkey island forrard. Love those tugs, always remind of Barbra Streisand singing.
Don't be suprised, I downloaded the high resolution version to look more closely.
