    The VERITY had a helical sternwheel and here's a view of what was often called her "lawnmower" wheel! Also a couple of images of her "high and dry" at Keokuk. Capt. Fred Way told me that, like the VERITY, the original plan for the W.P SNYDER, JR., when she was retired as a museum at Marietta in 1955, was to be out of the water, but it didn't happen.
