SS Belle of Lousiville matted Print

A nice little blue matted print of the Belle! She is still chugging along today … long after the DQ went to retirement in Tennessee. I wonder who challenges her in the Great Steamboat Race at Derby Dime … Maybe the little Julia Belle Swan? The artist is Robert Conely.

Avalon: Felt Souvenir Pennant

Here is a rare one … nice souvenir pennant for the paddle steamer Avalon. She started life as the Idlewild .. and since the 60’s has been the beloved Belle of Louisville! I have been aboard a few times …and I stop and see her any time I cross the 31/ Stansifer street bridge in Louisville. Excellent condition except the typical pin holes from display use and missing one set of the tiebacks.

Paddlewheels to Propellers: by Fishbaugh 4 generations of Howard shipbuilding in Jeffersonville.

Great historical work on the Howard Ohio river ship/ boat building. The Howard works still churn out maritime work today … mostly barge work for the inland river fleets. I have been to the Howard home and Steamboat museum … it is a beautiful place packed with Hoosier riverboat history.

The Delta Queen Steamboat Company: “save the queens” plate

Oh if only these 3 were still plying the American inland waters! Only the Americian Queen is in active service today (under different owners). The DQ herself is currently a B&B type hotel … and the MQ was deemed so full of mold that she is slowly being scrapped. Buying this plate was a way to support saving these ladies way before thier final demise! Great condition!
