What a picture....think of the years of steamboat experience gathered there. My guess as to date would be 1964/65. Is the fellow standing between Jesse Hughes and Doc Carr Bo Allen?????????? He looks familiar but its been 40 years ago. Is the man next to Capt. Wagner Capt. Blankenship who ran mate for a while?????
Wish Doc Hawley had a computer or some .orger from NOLA could get this picture to Doc, he would know and have a story about each and every one of them.
If memory serves me correct, Albert Kelly had license from Huntington to Memphis. I know on the first Reelfoot Lake trip he stood watches on the Lower Miss. and on the first Pittsburgh trip he piloted as far as Huntington where Fred Way got on.
