Default Goldenrod Showboat Centennial

There is an interesting article regarding the 100th birthday of the GOLDENROD SHOWBOAT on a website called Ecology of Absence. The article is accompanied by several sad photos of the boat rotting down at her landing in Kampsville, Illinois.

Click on Ecology of Absence: Goldenrod Showboat Celebrates its Centennial to access the article.

Herewith are a few more vintage views.
(1) Capt. Bill Menke in his office aboard the GOLDENROD - 1950.
