*RE: 1929 Steamboat Race Film*
Morning, steamboating colleagues:
Thanks, Ron, for posting the above film footage of the 1929 steamboat race. Great views and the producer did a nice job with comments along with actual sound. Sobering commentary mentioning all was over within a few years after 1929, dark descending cloud of the Great Depression. Hard to believe that up until not too many years ago a surviving few from those early races still were around attending S&D meetings in Marietta, Ohio. Fred Way eloquently tells the whole story in his book LOG OF THE BETSY ANN from beginning to end.
