Default Even more GCG people pix!!!!

I love this first one! Being a Streckfus fan, the first thing I noticed was the bow of the WASHINGTON behind the GORDON. This must have been taken in 1936, as the pilothouse configuration matches a previously posted pix taken in 1936. Of course Bill Judd was correct that the child was Gordon II - here he is again in his mother's arms. In fact, this might have been on the same trip. Standing in front of them is Mary, and father Tom is to their left. Did the Greenes have a household worker? If so, I presume that is she in the front row. Since there is a car behind this group, I'm guessing that Mrs. Greene and the two children rode the boat overnight from Cincinnati and then drove back home the next day, as she often did in later years without kids. Can someone tell me where this landing is? CW had no annotations on this pix, amazingly. Anyone want to ID other people in this group? The second pix is from the GCG as she is leaving the Cincinnati wharfboat. Chris Greene is in the second row waving, and Roy Barkhau is there somewhere. Can you ID others? The third pix was taken on the 1939 Derby trip: hostesses Larie Stickel Greene and Gloria Petroll.
