Amen, Brother Bruno! Steamboat signage and posters have long been one of my favorite items of riverboat memorabilia to collect. Masters of the art of painting "steamboaty" signs and doing fancy lettering are Capt. Doc Hawley, Capt. Lexie Palmore, Capt. Bob Reynolds, Dave Tschiggfrie and Capt. Mark Doty, now master of the BELLE OF LOUISVILLE.

Besides the dandy little DQ sign on Pat and Jo Ann's door, there was a "trick or treat" bag hanging on the knob! Other doors had non-boaty items, such as a scarecrow, fall foliage wreaths, etc. All interesting and fun!
