My parents rode the Str. AVALON for the 1949 New Albany (Indiana) High School prom. The yearbook has a dandy nightime picture of the boat all decked out in lights at the New Albany wharf, which was still intact until the floodwall was built in 1952. Also in the yearbook are photos of students on the boat and just about all the young men are wearing STEAMER AVALON caps. I once asked my parents "Why didn't you get ME one???" They had no idea at the time they'd have a steamboat fanatic son someday! Thanks to EBAY I have one of those caps!
