Default Just posted: CNN.com story on DQ

CNN.com has a story with photos supplied by Franz and me about the DQ. Our photos are used to illustrate her history. There is also a video of a departure in the story. Historic steamboat may be on last cruise - CNN.com

One caption ha-ha: Doc and our Cincy friends Ethel and Larry Walker and Dorothea Frye are misidentified as the new owners of the DQ, as they stand with Letha Greene by the roof bell.
To clarify the caption for picture 6, it is actually the occasion of Larry Walker presenting an acorn he made for the roof bell. In the picture are: Ethel Walker, Doc Hawley, Larry Walker, Dorothea Frye, and Letha Greene the DQ owner until 1969. This picture was taken in the mid 60s.
