As you said, Ginnie, Miss Helen coaxes some great music out of a piano and has been doing so since the days she entertained passengers as a youngster on the Str. TOM GREENE and other boats.

Attached are a couple of pictures I took some years ago at a party at "Rock Hill", home of Capt. C.W. and Lucy Stoll, following one of the steamboat races here. The twin pianos always got a workout -- especially when Miss Helen presided at the keyboard! In the second photo, Capt. Alan and Rita Bates visit with the "artiste" during a break.
