Default first view of the DQ

I was going through my Picasa file looking for something unsuccessfully, but I came across this picture of the DELTA QUEEN as she was laid up at the Rock Island levee from Sept. 17-26, 1954, that infamous time she 'ran through herself'.(see .org archives for extensive thread on this situation). This was the first time I ever saw her, as it was her first foray onto the UMR. When and where did YOU first see our QUEEN?
