Default More SS ADMIRAL pix

The first one is early '60s, pre-Arch. It looks like it must be the beginning of the season, with the fresh paint job on the decks and the crew putting up the umbrellas on the tables. This one certainly shows her broad width. The second one is from BelleRive sp? park, taken in 1943. The third one, which I took, shows the GOLDENROD and BECKY THATCHER below the ADMIRAL. This was taken on an historical occasion: my first trip on the DELTA QUEEN, Aug. 20, 1973 at 1 PM as we went under the Eads Bridge. It was a State Bank of East Moline charter so we left at 12:30, because that's when Dick Billings wanted to leave! Talk about a quick turnover day!
