Judy: Some thirty years ago, I took my family to St Louis. The company that I worked for at the time sent me. They had a plant/office at 2220 Washington St if I remember correctly. It was the first time that I had been "at large" in that city. I remember seeing the BECKY THATCHER (nee MISSISSIPPI) and the ADMIRAL both but went aboard neither. Each time that I go to Denver and cross the Mississippi, I look north to see if I can see her and usually do, if it is daylight. When not driving, I try to snap a picture and have one or two of them. However, I have never been aboard either the BECKY or the ADMIRAL.
