    Default Identify the boat

    This picture surfaced in an old family album. I showed it to Alan Bates the other day and he asked what boat these 6 girls were aboard. I assumed it was the AMERICA, but Alan said he didn't think so because of the gingerbread on the wing bridge and the pipe extensions on the texas railings. I got the UW/LaCrosse web site and looked at all the pictures of the AMERICA and, by goodness, Alan was right; it's not the AMERICA. I wonder what boat it could be.
    This is what I know.....it was taken here at Louisville. It was taken by my aunt who went to the Louisville Girls High School (they look like high school girls so I assume it was a school trip) and she graduated around 1925. It is a sidewheeler because the second picture was taken on the same day and clearly shows a girl standing next to the paddle box.
    Did Streckfus have any sidewheel excursion boats operating around here in the mid-1920's? Could it have been the first ISLAND QUEEN?
    The big Snickers bar is at stake here.
