Default Steamboat Print find In Oroville, CA!

My wife visited the local "upscale" thrift store here in Oroville, CA and spotted a matted and framed watercolor print of the Julia Belle Swain on the wall, appears to be a 14" x 20" print in a 19" x 25" silver metal frame. Artist is Paul N. Norton, in 1971. Her big "find" cost all of $12.50!
She's got a good Idea for finding stuff like this. Right now she's reading a "Christian Romance" book, "The River Queen" (a Water Wheel Novel) with the cover featuring a photo of the Natchez with the nameboard whited out.
