Mapping a Georeffenced Tiff that uses a World File (.tfw)

Hello,

I have a Tiff that is georefferenced using a .tfw. My understanding is that it was georefferenced in NAD 27. I have defined the projection to NAD 27 using the define projection tool yet the tiff draws way out in space somewhere. My first guess is that maybe NAD 27 is the wrong coordinate system but the user is confident it is.

 

Has anyone had this problem? What am I missing? Is there a way to reverse engineer what the coordinate system should be? 

 

The TFW looks like this:

 

16.842000000000
0.000000000000
0.000000000000
-16.842000000000
1318093.968382756200
890483.155222113940
