Default General Allen

Keith: WOW, thanks much for the information. My father, who went on the river around 1922 when he was 15 years old started & finished, (when he got married), on the General Allen. I think he perhaps got off around 1929, I have a lot of pictures he took at that time of the Allen & many other steam boats pertaining to the U.S. Corps of Engineers. That is the reason for my interest in the history of the boat & the Eagle. I will follow up on the whistle & whatever else comes along.
Thanks Again for your response.
