Herewith are some photos from my archives of the GOLDEN ARROW.

(1.) A 1964 artist's rendering of the boat at the Eads Bridge. (2.) At the St. Louis Levee in 1968. (3.) At West Alton, Missouri (Upper Mississippi River Mile 204.3) on September 21, 1969, "racing" the COPY CAT for a film crew at the Harbor Point Marina. Photo by William V. Torner. The old boat which shows at the left is the former Str. MAMIE S. BARRETT / PENNIMAN, which was part of the marina for many years (renamed PIASA) and is now high and dry in a cutoff at Deer Park, Louisiana.
