    Default Possible Treasure Trove of ISLAND QUEEN Photos Found

    A fellow named Jim Blackburn from Cincinnati posted a comment on a Facebook page saying he may have many photographs of both ISLAND QUEENs. Jim isn't savvy with a computer, but he did manage to send me three pics he copied with a camera or cell phone. Here's a couple exciting photos of passengers being disgorged at Coney Island and the boat departing the park. I hope I can get more photos of a better quality. He needs access to a scanner. Who knows what treasures he may have?

    Any info on what is going on down at Markland Dam? Seems they have had two towboat incidents in the last two days one requiring a "recovery plan" which does not sound good?

    The photo of the Big Liz leaving Coney is early on in her life. She is still sporting the pilothouse's copper dome which was given to a W.W.II scrap metal drive and still has the puddin's on her stacks.
