Default The end, literally

1) the sternwheel up close and personal. Note there are no monkey rudders. She has the 3 rudders, from the CLAIRTON, forward of the wheel, period. Some might remember the distinctive white rim on the outer edge of the wheel. This was removed in the layup at Buck Kreis in 1990. They had the wheel off and on the wharf to paint it. Every time they turned it, they bent a section of the white rim, so they took it off (they almost rolled the wheel into the drink once also)
2) as she glides into the Toulouse St. wharf
3) 8 blocks from the NATCHEZ - my courtyard at the Beauregard Keyes House.
