When Bert Fenn rode the DELTA QUEEN he tipped in Tell City Furniture. Captain Wagner, Henry Mitchell, Ida Mae Ferrell, Mamie and the Davis family, and other Fenn favorites were sure to receive their share of truck loads of TC woodenwares. The furniture was taken aboard at the Cannelton Landing and loaded in the deckroom of the firebox and transported to Cincinnati where most of the recipients resided. The DELTA QUEEN took on the appearance of a packetboat loaded down with the valuable cargo.
