Default DQ history and the continuing education...

I've been studying older postcards, older pictures of the Delta Queen to try and grasp the time line by what I see in the pictures. These four pictures interest me in the unique use of color at the aft end of the boat. Could somebody here point me to the correct years for these pictures if my guesses are wrong? Thanks!

The first two pictures are basically the same time period? Pre-calliope, natural material wheel, WHITE ! signboard...I'm thinking mid 1950's...say 1956?

It was about this time, 1958, that I visited the DQ as a youngster. And I vividly remember the wheel not being red...
